Two locals just been convicted of netting with a floating net.
New legislation had made the area they were netting in a protected area.

These boys had been at this game for along time and Bass was they're target, only a lot of effort by the local police force wildlife & conservation officer in conjuction with the fisheries officers brought them to court.

They were both each fined £500 with £150 costs.
Not half enough in my opinion, but we have to start somewhere

It's a pity the Court never confiscated thier 4x4 and the dingy they were using.
These were the two boys who were out the NW beaches at every opportunity.
They must have been selling the fish somewhere local.
No doubt they'll be back out this summer somewhere between Ramsey and Ballaugh.
If you see them about give the boys a DAFF a ring
