ALL groups and societies with an interest in fishing in Ceredigion are being urged to respond to National Resources Wales’ current consultation on the proposals for new controls.

Assembly Member Elin Jones recently met with Teifi Trout Association members, who voiced their concerns at the proposed sweeping changes, which they argued could affect the future viability of the club and also the many businesses that rely on fishing tourism around the River Teifi.

The result of NRW’s consultation will help to inform the Welsh Government on how best to protect stocks of salmon and sea trout in Wales, and now Ms Jones has emphasised the need for all interested parties to make sure their views and opinions are heard.

“The result of this consultation will influence new laws on the catching and releasing of fish, as well as seasonal restrictions and restrictions on the types of rods and bait,” she said.

“There have been lots of concerns raised with me by many angling associations in Ceredigion, and so I urge them and all concerned parties to respond to the consultation and make their voices heard.”

The consultation can be found on the Natural Resources Wales website ( and will run until November 14.
