This is the report from the Northern Area Fisheries Advisory Committee meeting, which was held on the 28th March, 1983. The report contains sections on rules for fishing at Haweswater and Thirlmere, Fyke nets and otters, Whirling disease, and Fisheries Activities. The section on Fyke nets looks at the loss of at least 23 otters in fyke nets over eighteen months. The section on Fisheries Activities is reported by the area fisheries officer and includes river conditions and fishing, migratory fish movement, Holmwrangle hatchery, stocking by Angling Associations, fish mortalities and pollution.
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.
