I think one of the reasons why there are so many small markers and the amount of poor quality markers milk containers ect is that in order to take any crab or lobster either by pot, nets or even diving ,you now need a permit issued FREE by the local fisheries office. in our area you even get 10 plastic tags to go on your pots, thing is that now this has happened a lot of people who perhaps wouldent have bothered see no reason not to have a go at potting and probley get exited watching deadliest catch on tv. also there are a lot of fold up pots getting sold on web sites now which means that even the smallest boat can drop a few off the ones that work like a pop up tent.

I may be out of touch but I think there is an exemption to boats using less than five pots, and catching less no more than 1 lobster and 5 crab on any one day...

Actually tighter regs - SHOULD result in better marking of pots - as each pot is traceable to its owner.

It may be the case in your area perhaps but on the north east coast of england you need a permit even for one ,even if you catch a crab on the beach by hand,there used to be an exemption like you said for us but not now , regards martin

AFAIK you can take as much as you like here as long as it is not for commercial use, ie you don't sell it on.

I was always wondering about shrimp pots here in Alaska, people seem to place them right in the way of boats sometimes and I almost hit several buoys that are faded and really blend in (or sometimes can't see them because of the wave action). Most pots seem to use leaded line and nice big inflatable orange buoys, but you always get a couple that aren't, and I've heard that some people use floating lines sometimes. If i hit one of those in the fog/bad weather I'm chopping it...

The regulations differ around the coast dependant on what the local Sea Fisheries Comittees' byelaws are.

Some will only issue permits to registered fishing boats, others issue leisure permits too. In addition there are of course the EU and local minimum size limits to consider too. You are bound by the same laws as the commerical fishermen and can legally be boarded under warrant by fisheries officers as well as having your vehicle etc inspected. Their powers related to sea fishing are wide ranging.

Most of the SFDC have websites with their byelaws on - best to check as officers vary in their leniency.... and fines in court can be surprising high for a seemingly small offence.

A few years ago my mates open wooden boat ,ran over a floating pot rope ,rope caught around the prop and with the forward momentum ,boat weight around 3tons ,pulls out the prop and shaft and bearing leaving a 4 inch hole in the boat if it wasent for the fact that he stuffed his shirt in the hole he would have drowned fortunatly he and boat were saved , but it was a close thing , eventually after a bit of a local inquest by the rest of our guys at the club the culprit was found the cheeky b.......,d said he was keeping the prop and shaft for compo for damaging his fishing gear, but with a bit of not so gental persuasion he gave it back .
