Lobster gets fisheries worker in hot water
A FISHERIES Authority member has resigned after he breached the authority’s own byelaws.
William Miller, formally of the Northumberland Inshore Fisheries & Conservation Authority (NIFCA) was discovered in possession of an undersized lobster by a NIFCA patrol.
He was also in possession of a specially ‘v-notched’ lobster. These are not intended for capture, in order to boost stocks .
Miller disputed the accusation, and was issued with a warning.
The Authority took the view that the nature of the offence had made Mr Miller’s position as a NIFCA member untenable and he was asked to tender his resignation.
