King Scallop season 2019

There are further restrictions in place for the Isle of Man’s king scallop fishery in 2019. The latest season began on 1 November with the volume that can be caught reduced by 20% from the 2018 limit by the Department of Environment, Food and Agriculture.

Environment Minister Geoffrey Boot said the move would help to keep the “important industry” sustainable.

Fishing boats licensed to fish in Manx waters will be restricted to a daily catch of 560kg, down from 700kg in 2018.

Furthermore the scallop fishery will be closed between 22 December 2019 and 3 January 2020.
