*Applications for Razor Fishing Licences are not currently being accepted*

Following both the Consultation on the Recommendations from the Scottish Licensing Review Working Group and an increase in complaints about the illegal activity of electro-fishing, Marine Scotland introduced new licensing arrangements for the Razor Fishery.

Since 18 August 2014 it has been strictly prohibited to fish for, carry and land razor fish (Ensis spp.) with a domestic licence. Authorisation to fish for, carry or land razor fish is only given in the form of a separate ‘Razor Fish Licence’.
