Angling restrictions eased

Marine Scotland Blog - Fri, 2020-05-29 09:01

Angling will be permitted from Friday 29 May as part of phase 1 of the easing of lockdown restrictions.

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has announced people can go fishing on their own or with a member of their household in their local area, as long as they adhere to physical distancing measures.

"Lockdown is being modified slightly – it is not over".

Today FM @NicolaSturgeon outlined the changes to the current lockdown restrictions which will come into effect from tomorrow (Friday 29 May).

During this phase,  travelling for activities, like angling, should remain within the local area and you should try to travel by foot or bike. As a guide, five miles from your home would be within your local area.

You must also continue to:

  • Ensure physical distancing is in place by staying at least 2 metres away from other people
  • Wash or sanitise hands thoroughly and regularly
  • Ensure cough etiquette is maintained
  • Wear face coverings in enclosed spaces

The move to phase one will allow those of us who are not self-isolating or shielding to work in and enjoy the outdoors more. Of course, if you or anyone in your household has symptoms of coronavirus you must continue to self-isolate.

Fisheries Management Scotland and Angling Scotland have established guidance to help anglers ensure a safe environment for themselves and all on-site staff.

We welcome the First Minister’s announcement today that angling activity can resume in Scotland in line with the phased approach to relaxing the current restrictions. See our updated guidance for anglers & fishery owners https://t.co/ElNnpH1Y0F @marinescotland pic.twitter.com/XW6IE6hyuP

This guidance will be kept under review so that it continues to be in line with public health advice. Anglers are advised to regularly check this guidance and their fisheries for updates.

We welcome the news that Angling has been allowed from Friday. Our guidance to both Anglers and Fisheries was well received by @sportscotland and @scotgov. We looking forward to working together as we move forward safely
