This public consultation opens on Wednesday, 08/02/2023 at 5:00pm and closes on Thursday, 09/03/2023 at 5:00pm

Inland Fisheries Ireland is seeking submissions in relation to a proposal to restrict the commercial salmon draft net season on the Loughros estuary, Co. Donegal in 2023 to fishing between the 1st July and 21st July.

The proposed changes are to reflect the limited overall salmon quota available for 2023 and the number of commercial draft nets available. An overall surplus of 283 salmon has been advised for 2023 to be divided between the commercial draft net and recreational angling sectors.

The commercial draft net season for the fishery normally opens on the 12th May and closes on the 31st July.

Any person wishing to make observations on the proposed regulation may make submissions before 5 pm Thursday 9th March, either by e-mail to ballyshannon@fisheriesireland.ie or to the address below:-
