UK fisheries are heavily regulated by domestic and EU law.  It is important for any organisation that is considering buying or developing a fishery to get legal advice to ensure you are meeting all of the regulatory requirements.  We would be happy to help with this. 


Legal issues that may arise

  • Acquisition and disposal of fisheries.

  • Licences for fishing rights.

  • Environmental law issues including litigation for the contamination of fisheries by surrounding landowners.

  • Regulatory requirements.  

Examples of work undertaken by DJB lawyers

  • Advised a fuel company on the environmental impacts of the contamination of a fishing lake by petrol and diesel.

  • Advised a water company on upgrades to its waste treatment process in response to the Shellfish Waters Directive.
