If you haven’t already heard (see previous posts), the Environment Agency has confirmed they will not be installing the weed booms during the C-19 restrictions and have issued a stop on weed cutting unless you can self-extract.
Latest message from Phil Rudd (EA – Fisheries Technical Specialist) as follows:
‘All cut weed should be removed within the fishery. At the moment we couldn’t allow any activities that may increase the likelihood of our operations team needing to be called out to clear blockages etc. however small that risk.’
We still have a way to go before the weed cut in May; we will keep you posted if there are any changes.
If you have any questions please contact Bob Wellard – Hon Sec
