HC Deb 09 May 1977 vol 931 cc374-5W
Mr. Onslow

asked the Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food what action he is taking to conserve stocks of Atlantic salmon; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Bishop

British fishing vessels are prohibited from fishing for salmon outside of a line drawn 12 miles beyond base-lines. I am not aware of any fishing for salmon by other countries within British fishery limits.
