Reporting Illegal Fishing

If you see any fishing, netting or trapping that you think is illegal, please don’t tackle it yourself.

Call the Environment Agency on 0800 80 70 60 and tell them:

  • Exactly where the possible offence is
  • What’s happening
  • How many people are involved together with a description
  • The registration number of any vehicles involved plus any other details you think might help. Don’t forget to leave a contact number so that they can call you back.
