This is the report from the Central Area Fisheries Advisory Committee meeting, which was held on the 14th October, 1981. It includes the information on the recommendations of the Area Fisheries Advisory Committees on the Review of Inland and Coastal Fisheries in England and Wales, and the restructuring of rod and line fishing licence duties. It also covers concern of the timing of recent repair work and a proposal for a fish trap on Forge Weir on the River Lune, and the report by the area fisheries officer on fisheries activities. This comments on river conditions and fishing, migratory fish movements, and an update on Middleton hatchery, Salmon Cages in the Leven, and Langcliffe hatchery. Finally the report adds about stockings carried out by the Authority, fish disease, fish mortality and management work.
The Fisheries Advisory Committee was part of the Regional Water Authorities, in this case the North West Water Authority. This preceded the Environment Agency which came into existence in 1996.
