Fishery Watch is a nationwide organisation that is a trading name of UK Angling & Conservation Group Ltd, a registered not for profit company it was establishedp by a team of dedicated anglers, in order promote and protect angling and the environment in and around fisheries, rivers, streams & canals in the United Kingdom and beyond.

We are very different from other organisations out there, we are 100% independant from any government body, this enables us to take on cases and investigations that others organisations would not consider.

Fishery Watch is hoping to join up with other organisations around the country in order to work together and cover as much of the country as  is possible in order to protect our great sport & the environment and wildlife around the country.

 Black Rock Lave Net FisheryFighting for Black Rock Lave Net Fishery

Fishery Watch has taken on the fight to preserve the ancient art of Lave Net Fishing on the Severn Estuary, Black Rock Lave net Fishery is the last remaining group of lave net fishermen left in Wales.

There entire existance is being threatened by the rules that there landlord, Natural Resources Wales (NRW) are imposing on the group by insisting that they can only operate on a catch and release basis. This practice has been going on for hundreds of years, Fishery Watch knows from the information we have received that there practice poses no threat whatsoever to the Salmon stocks, in fact we believe that they catch a lot less than a very small percentage of the  fish that are being killed in the spawning rivers of the River Wye & River Severn. But it would appear that Natural Resources Wales are happy to allow the massively increased number that die every year from the method they are imposing of Catch & Release. 

Lave Net Fishing in Wales

Fishery Watch is honoured to join the fight to preserve the future of this ancient Lave Net Fishery, unfortunately if this fishery goes that is the end of Lave Net fishing in Wales forever, how sad is that the whole ancient practice will just be dissolved to the history books forever. Fishery Watch cannot and will not allow this to happen without a fisht, and fight we will.

We are calling on Anglers & Conservations alike to come and join us to help preseve this great tradition on the River Severn, these people really are conservationist's themselves, please, please contact Fishery Watch on 0333 011 5888 or in Wales contact 029 2188 0908 or simply email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and help us to save Black Rock Lave Net Fishery, we cannot let this happen and if we have our way it won't.
