2. Why We Are Consulting
2.1 In February 2017, Scottish Ministers made a commitment to explore potential freshwater conservation provisions ahead of the introduction of a Wild Fisheries Bill.
2.2 The initial recommendation from our exploration of potential freshwater conservation provisions with the Wild Fisheries Reform Stakeholder Reference Group is the introduction of conservation regulations to provide better protection for pike.
2.3 The purpose of this consultation paper is to seek views on whether these legislative provisions should be introduced.
