Inland Fisheries Ireland has launched a public consultation on the management of pike in designated wild brown trout fisheries. The Board of Inland Fisheries Ireland has decided to commence a review period of its policies on the management of Wild Brown Trout, Pike and Bass which were initially developed in 2014. A consultation process will now commence and will focus initially on pike management.
Inland Fisheries Ireland recognises the diverse opinions of stakeholders regarding the management of pike in wild brown trout fisheries and welcomes the opportunity to engage on this issue. All interested parties are invited to make submissions which will be comprehensively reviewed and considered by the newly appointed Pike and Wild Brown Trout Policy Review Group. This group comprises of a range of representatives from all disciplines within Inland Fisheries Ireland.
