Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations specify natural prawns and shrimps and any part of them for the purposes of the definition of “rod and line” in section 24(1) of the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Protection) (Scotland) Act 1951. They apply to the River Nith and its tributaries within the River Nith salmon fishery district upstream of a line drawn across the River Nith between grid reference 97507483 and grid reference 97537470. The effect is to prohibit, for the whole of each year, the use of natural prawns and shrimps (or any part of them) as bait when fishing by rod and line for salmon and sea trout.
