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.
