NRW Proposals

Dear Member,

Please see the NRW (Natural Resources Wales) e-mail (below) and the attachment form NRW, this relates to proposals for new controls, regarding fishing for Salmon and Sea Trout.
Kind Regards.
Clive Williams Hon. Secretary C&DAS.

NRW proposals for new controls on fishing for salmon and sea trout

After careful consideration of our evidence and wishing to take full account of the views we have received during our engagements with customers and stakeholders, we are now proposing changes to fishing controls to the salmon and sea trout net and rod fisheries.

We would like to make you aware that we have:

  1. Advertised a new Net Limitation Order
  2. Launched  a statutory consultation on  new byelaws for rod and net fishing

Both processes began on 22 August 17 and runs for 12 weeks.

The proposals include:

  • Maintaining the same number of net licences in the 13 public salmon and sea trout net fisheries
  • Making consistent the start and end of the  net fishing seasons:
    • Shortening the netting season by starting net fisheries no earlier than 1st May
    • Ending the netting season on the 31st July
  • Implementing full catch and release fishing on all net and rod fisheries for salmon
  • Requiring sea trout catch and release in rod fisheries on vulnerable rivers before 1st May
  • Setting a 60cm maximum size limit for sea trout in rod fisheries
  • Implementing method restrictions (bait, barbless hooks and trebles) so that released fish have a good chance of survival (Byelaws)

This is both a complex and, for many a contentious issue.  In order to help you, please find attached the executive summary to our technical case, summarising our approach.

A full set of documents including the technical case, byelaws, and response form can be found on our web site http://naturalresources.wales/catchcontrols2017

If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us Fisheries.Wales@cyfoethnaturiolcymru.gov.uk

Make your voice heard over ‘right to roam’ proposals in Wales

Countryside Alliance Chief Executive Tim Bonner writes:

It may feel like groundhog day to Welsh anglers, but having successfully made their case when an access challenge was mounted by canoeists, the issue is back on the political agenda just a few months after the last bout. Cabinet Secretary Lesley Griffiths AM has launched a consultation “Taking Forward Wales”, similar to a November 2016’s consultation “Taking Wales Forward” (no, I’m not kidding). While the Welsh Government seems to be running short of catchy titles for consultations, they are also covering old ground, and Welsh taxpayers are yet again footing the bill.

The nub of the access part of the consultation is a proposal to extend the Countryside and Rights of Way (CRoW) Act to all rivers and inland waters, effectively offering open access to all inland water in Wales. Landowners, riparian owners and angling clubs agree that while improved access to inland water for recreation is welcomed, it needs to be managed and we can’t have a ‘one size fits all’ open access approach. While this is the same answer to the last consultation a few months ago, we will be diligent in making the case once more with feeling, and would be grateful if you would add your voice to ours and take part in our e-campaign.

Anglers have a point in feeling that the Government is ignoring their sector, not least because of the alarming recurrence in the same issue, despite thinking it had been resolved for years to come. As I mentioned, we have been here before, at great taxpayer expense, and while anglers are happy to compromise in order to reach a deal, canoeing bodies seem less so, appearing to want the Welsh Government to legislate in their favour rather than have to compromise.

The so-called “right to paddle” issue is just one of the proposals in this consultation, which also includes making footpaths accessible for horse riding and cycling. We will of course be responding to all the parts of the consultation which affect you, our members and supporters, and will keep you updated on progress. Let’s hope there isn’t another consultation before Christmas.

You can add your weight to our campaign by signing our response letterI cannot stress how important it is that we once again defend our interests within this consultation. If you have ever cast a fly on a river in Wales, indulged in our network of footpaths, ridden through or shot over our rich landscape, please pass this letter far and wide and ask for support. Read the consultation in full.

For more information please contact our Director for Wales, Rachel Evans at rachel-evans@countryside-alliance.org. Rachel will be at the Royal Welsh Show next week and will be happy to discuss this issue with you if you are at the show.

Proposed Fishing Controls in Wales – An Update 21st February 2017

Please find attached an update on the proposed fishing controls in Wales.

 

You will note that as a result of the outlined timescales, NRW can announce that there will be no change to

fishing byelaws for the 2017 season. Mandatory Catch and Release fishing for salmon and

additional measures for sea trout in Welsh rivers, which has been our preferred option for

most rivers, will not be introduced for the 2017 season. This is because we have concluded

that we need more time to ensure we have confirmed the right set of measures to secure the

right outcome.

Briefing for Local Fishery Groups

SALMON AND SEA TROUT STOCK STATUS.

PROPOSED FISHING CONTROLS IN WALES – AN

UPDATE

Fisheries EP&P Team, February 2017

A SHARED VISION

  • NRW is charged by Welsh Government with the implementation and discharge of relevant

statutory duties for fisheries to ensure the sustainable management of populations of

freshwater and migratory fish in Wales.

  • The fisheries of Wales are iconic, renowned, and highly valued – contributing to viable, vibrant

communities in Wales. The fish stocks that support them are equally valued as an important

natural resource and we seek to manage them within sustainable limits

  • The status of Welsh fisheries is an indicator of the health and resilience of the natural

resources of Wales. Several species support designations in 8 Natura 2000 sites in Wales.

  • Our vision is for healthy, wild populations of fish in Wales supporting thriving and sustainably

managed fisheries.

 

ENGAGEMENT AND FUTURE CONSULTATION

Engagement with Local Fisheries Groups (LFGs) on the status of our salmon and sea trout stocks,

and possible new exploitation controls required to improve their status, has been ongoing for at

least a year. So far this has been through informal liaison at which we have sought views and

experience from fishermen and stakeholders across Wales.

Changing existing fisheries byelaws for salmon and sea trout is a complex issue. We have to

make the right decision to protect depleted fish stocks and ensure they are managed sustainably

for the future benefit of fishermen and the people of Wales.

We have spoken with fisheries groups across Wales over the past year, and have been reviewing

all available evidence. We continue to do so, and when we have fully considered all relevant

matters, we will then decide on what is required to address stock declines. This is still likely to

include new rod and net fishing byelaws for the 2018 season, and also the renewal of the all-Wales

Net Limitation Order.

We have listened to our LFGs, and have received and welcomed a great deal of constructive

feedback and comments. We are grateful to all who have contributed, and we have taken full

account of all views in carefully reviewing our position. This has taken longer than we thought, and

the process is therefore delayed, but we still hope to launch a formal public consultation soon. We

now hope to initiate this in April, when you will see the package of measures that we will be

commending to Welsh Government.

Due to the complex and potentially contentious nature of the measures, the consultation will be

open for a period of 12 weeks, rather than the normal 4-6 week period. This will ensure that all

have enough time to respond. Thereafter there will be a period to consider and respond to representations.

www.naturalresourceswales.gov.uk  Page 1 of 4

 

As a result of this outline timescale, NRW can announce that there will be no change to

fishing byelaws for the 2017 season. Mandatory Catch and Release fishing for salmon and

additional measures for sea trout in Welsh rivers, which has been our preferred option for

most rivers, will not be introduced for the 2017 season. This is because we have concluded

that we need more time to ensure we have confirmed the right set of measures to secure the

right outcome.

We cannot pre-judge the outcome of the consultation or the timetable for subsequent

implementation of new measures. The serious situation to which we are responding continues to

be a matter for great concern, and we urge fisheries and fishermen to introduce their own

effective voluntary measures this year to ensure no salmon are killed in 2017.

All our existing byelaws including The Spring Salmon byelaws, requiring the release of all rodcaught

fish prior to 16th June and all net-caught fish prior to 1st June, remain in force along with other measures found here:

https://naturalresources.wales/fisheries/fishing/?lang=en

CURRENT STATUS OF SALMON AND SEA TROUT

Salmon and in some cases sea trout stocks are severely challenged throughout Wales. Our

evidence is that numbers of returning adult fish are generally at historic lows, and we have now

also noted a very worrying and significant reduction in the number of young fish in our streams.

This will have a significant impact on future generations of fish.

The delay in developing new control measures in response to this means that we will have a

further years’ assessment of our stocks to consolidate our views.

Adult salmon

 We have 23 principal salmon rivers in Wales, and, in 2016, all but 2 stocks (Severn and

Glaslyn) were assessed as ‘At Risk’ or ‘Probably at Risk’ of failing to achieve their

Management Target.

 The early evidence from the 2016 season is that there has been no marked improvement in

the salmon run – as determined by an initial review of catches (with the exception of the

River Wye). Early results from our monitoring programme on the River Dee, a nationally

important index river, indicates that the salmon run in 2016 was among the lowest in 25

years of monitoring.

Adult sea trout

 We also have 33 main sea trout rivers, and 15 (45%) of the stocks were assessed as either

‘At Risk’ or ‘Probably at Risk’ in 2015.

 Stocks in South West Wales are giving rise to most cause for concern

Juvenile salmon and trout – 2016 monitoring results.

 Our annual fish monitoring in 2016 showed a marked reduction in the numbers of salmon

and trout fry derived from spawning in the winter of 2015/16. There was also a broad

reduction in numbers of older fish derived from spawning in 2014/15.

 

www.naturalresourceswales.gov.uk Page 2 of 4

 

These results are unprecedented. The effect was widespread across Wales with similar

declines reported on rivers in England, Scotland, Ireland and France. This implies broadscale,

common causative factors.

 As a consequence of this significant and wide scale effect, poor returns of adult salmon and

sea trout are more likely in many rivers in 2018-2021, but particularly so in 2019 and 2020.

Our response

Given the depleted state of salmon stocks, our ambition is that no adult salmon are deliberately

killed by the fisheries in 2017. Hence, we urge anglers and netsmen to voluntarily release all the

salmon they catch.

To achieve this, we ask all angling clubs, fishing associations and fishery owners to introduce their own rules to ensure all salmon, and a greater proportion of larger sea trout, are returned alive and

well to the river.

We also ask for fishery rules to be amended to end fishing methods that damage fish. In this way

released fish will have the greatest chance of surviving and contributing to future fish stocks by

successfully spawning.

OUR PREFERRED OPTIONS FOR ADULT EXPLOITATION CONTROL

In the meantime, we continue to prepare a technical case on which proposals for future fishing

controls will be based.

Our current outline proposals are:-

  • New byelaw controls requiring:-

– Full statutory Catch and Release (no kill) fishing for salmon in rod and net fisheries

across Wales (with the probable exception of rivers where stocks are deemed

‘Probably Not at Risk’ or ‘Not at Risk’).

– Additional controls on nets and rods where sea trout stocks are considered to be in

poor condition. Controls may include: slot length (a limit on the maximum size of

fish that can be retained), amendments to fishing seasons and the use of catch

conditions on nets to limit the number of carcass tags issued, and hence the number of sea trout taken, to sustainable limits.

– Wherever Catch and Release rod fishing is in place – additional statutory controls to

prevent the use of methods that are not compatible with high survival rates of

released fish. These may include prohibitions on bait fishing, the use of barbed

hooks and the use of treble hooks.

  • A renewed Net Limitation Order (NLO):-

– Although we do not currently propose to reduce the number of net licences available

under the terms of the current NLO, we will be proposing to amend byelaws to

prevent the taking of any salmon and to limit the numbers of sea trout that may be

killed. We are therefore minded to consult on a ‘no change’ NLO.

 

www.naturalresourceswales.gov.uk                                                                 Page 3 of 4

 

CONCLUSION

Salmon stock levels in Wales are considerably below the level that we consider to be either

sustainable or desirable.

Some of our sea trout stocks are similarly low and in an unsustainable condition.

Continuing to kill fish whilst stocks are depleted presents an unacceptable risk.

If we are going to protect our fisheries, help them recover and ensure they are resilient to future

pressures, then we must maximise the numbers of fish that survive to spawn. This is crucial, whilst

other work is ongoing to restore river habitats.

For the 2017 season, we ask everyone to increase commitment towards:-

A voluntary no-kill of salmon throughout 2017 for all net and rod fisheries in Wales

Anglers to only use methods which give returned fish the best chance of survival.

STATWS STOCIAU EOGIAID A SEWIN.

MESURAU RHEOLI PYSGOTA ARFAETHEDIG YNG

NGHYMRU – DIWEDDARIAD

Tîm Tystiolaeth, Polisi a Thrwyddedu Pysg Pysgodfeydd,

CYD-WELEDIGAETH

  • Mae Cyfoeth Naturiol Cymru

wedi derbyn y dasg gan Lywodraeth Cymru o weithredu a chyflawni dyletswyddau statudol

perthnasol ar gyfer pysgodfeydd, er mwyn sicrhau bod poblogaethau o bysgod dŵr croyw a

physgod mudol yng Nghymru yn cael eu rheoli mewn modd cynaliadwy.

  • Mae pysgodfeydd Cymru yn eiconaidd, yn enwog, ac yn cael eu mawrbrisio – ac yn cyfrannu at

gymunedau hyfyw a bywiog yng Nghymru. Mae’r stociau pysgod sy’n eu cynnal yn cael eu

mawrbrisio yn yr un modd fel adnodd naturiol pwysig, ac rydym yn ceisio eu rheoli o fewn

terfynau cynaliadwy.

  • Mae statws pysgodfeydd Cymru yn ddangosydd ar gyfer iechyd a chydnerthedd adnoddau

naturiol Cymru. Mae nifer o rywogaethau’n sail i ddynodiadau ar gyfer wyth safle Natura 2000

yng Nghymru.

  • Ein gweledigaeth yw y bydd poblogaethau pysgod iach a gwyllt yng Nghymru yn cynnal

pysgodfeydd sy’n ffynnu ac yn cael eu rheoli mewn modd cynaliadwy.

YMGYSYLLTU AC YMGYNGHORI YN Y DYFODOL

Mae ein gwaith o gysylltu â Grwpiau Pysgodfeydd Lleol ynglŷn â statws ein stociau eogiaid a

sewin, a mesurau rheoli ymelwa newydd posibl sydd eu hangen i wella eu statws, wedi bod yn

parhau am flwyddyn o leiaf. Hyd yn hyn, gwnaed hyn trwy waith cysylltu anffurfiol lle rydym wedi

ceisio safbwyntiau a phrofiad gan bysgotwyr a rhanddeiliaid ledled Cymru.

Mae newid is-ddeddfwriaethau pysgodfeydd cyfredol ar gyfer eogiaid a sewin yn fater cymhleth.

Mae’n rhaid inni wneud y penderfyniad cywir i amddiffyn stociau pysgod sydd wedi dirywio, a

sicrhau eu bod yn cael eu rheoli mewn modd cynaliadwy er budd pysgotwyr a phobl Cymru yn y

dyfodol.

Rydym wedi siarad â grwpiau pysgodfeydd ledled Cymru dros y flwyddyn ddiwethaf, ac wedi bod

yn adolygu’r holl dystiolaeth sydd ar gael. Rydym yn parhau i wneud hynny, a phan fyddwn wedi

llawn ystyried yr holl faterion perthnasol, byddwn yn gwneud penderfyniad ynglŷn â’r hyn sydd ei

angen er mwyn rhoi sylw i stociau sy’n dirywio. Mae’n debyg y bydd hyn yn dal i gynnwys isddeddfwriaethau

newydd i reoleiddio pysgota â gwialen a rhwyd ar gyfer tymor 2018, a hefyd

adnewyddu Gorchymyn Cyfyngu ar Rwydi Cymru Gyfan.

Rydym wedi gwrando ar ein grwpiau pysgodfeydd lleol, ac wedi derbyn ac wedi croesawu llawer o

adborth a sylwadau adeiladol. Rydym yn ddiolchgar i bawb sydd wedi cyfrannu, ac rydym wedi

llawn ystyried pob safbwynt yn ofalus wrth inni adolygu ein safbwynt ni. Mae hyn wedi cymryd mwy

o amser nag roeddem yn ei ddisgwyl ac, felly, mae’r broses wedi cael ei hoedi, ond rydym yn dal

yn obeithiol y byddwn yn lansio ymgynghoriad cyhoeddus cyn bo hir. Bellach rydym yn gobeithio

dechrau’r broses hon ym mis Ebrill, pan fyddwch yn gweld y pecyn o fesurau y byddwn yn eu hargymell i Lywodraeth Cymru.

 

Tudalen 1 o 4

 

Oherwydd natur gymhleth ac, o bosibl, gynhennus y mesurau, bydd yr ymgynghoriad ar agor am

gyfnod o 12 wythnos, yn hytrach na’r cyfnod arferol o rhwng pedair a chwe wythnos. Bydd hyn yn

sicrhau bod gan bawb amser i ymateb. Ar ôl hynny, bydd cyfnod ar gyfer ystyried ac ymateb i

sylwadau.

O ganlyniad i’r amserlen amlinellol hon, gall CNC gyhoeddi na fydd unrhyw newidiadau i isddeddfwriaethau

pysgota ar gyfer tymor 2017. Ni fydd mesurau dal a rhyddhau gorfodol ar

gyfer eogiaid a mesurau ychwanegol ar gyfer sewin yn afonydd Cymru – sef yr opsiwn sydd

wedi cael ei ffafrio gennym ar gyfer y rhan fwyaf o afonydd – yn cael eu cyflwyno ar gyfer

tymor 2017. Mae hyn oherwydd rydym wedi dod i’r casgliad bod angen rhagor o amser

arnom i sicrhau ein bod wedi cadarnhau’r set gywir o fesurau er mwyn sicrhau’r canlyniad

cywir.

Ni allwn ragfarnu canlyniad yr ymgynghoriad na’r amserlen ar gyfer y gwaith dilynol i weithredu’r

mesurau newydd. Mae’r sefyllfa ddifrifol rydym yn ymateb iddi’n parhau i fod yn fater sy’n peri

pryder mawr, ac rydym yn annog pysgodfeydd a physgotwyr i gyflwyno eu mesurau

effeithiol eu hunain yn wirfoddol eleni i sicrhau nad oes unrhyw eogiaid yn cael eu lladd yn

2017.

Mae ein holl is-ddeddfwriaethau cyfredol – gan gynnwys is-ddeddfwriaethau eogiaid gwanwyn yn

ei gwneud yn ofynnol rhyddhau’r holl bysgod a ddelir â gwialen cyn 16 Mehefin a’r holl bysgod a

ddelir â rhwyd cyn 1 Mehefin – yn parhau i fod mewn grym yn ogystal â mesurau eraill a geir yma:

https://naturalresources.wales/media/680578/is_ddeddfau_pysgota_2017.pdf?lang=cy

STATWS CYFREDOL EOGIAID A SEWIN

Mae stociau eogiaid ac mewn rhai achosion sewin yn wynebu heriau difrifol ledled Cymru. Mae

tystiolaeth bod niferoedd o bysgod aeddfed sy’n dychwelyd wedi cyrraedd y lefelau isaf ers i

gofnodion ddechrau, a bellach rydym wedi nodi gostyngiad sylweddol yn nifer y pysgod ifanc yn ein

nentydd, sy’n peri pryder. Bydd hyn yn cael effaith sylweddol ar genedlaethau pysgod yn y dyfodol.

Mae’r oedi yn y gwaith o ddatblygu mesurau rheoli newydd mewn ymateb i hyn yn golygu y bydd

gennym flwyddyn bellach i asesu ein stociau ac atgyfnerthu ein safbwyntiau.

Eogiaid aeddfed

 Mae gennym 23 prif afon eogiaid yng Nghymru, ac yn 2016 dangosodd asesiadau fod

stociau pob un ond dwy (Afon Hafren ac Afon Glaslyn) ‘Mewn Perygl/ neu ‘Yn Debygol o

Fod Mewn Perygl’ o beidio â chyrraedd eu Targed Rheoli.

 Mae’r dystiolaeth gynnar o dymor 2016 yn dangos na fu unrhyw welliant sylweddol i’r llif

eogiaid – yn ôl adolygiad cychwynnol o ddalfeydd (ac eithrio Afon Gwy). Mae canlyniadau

cynnar o’n rhaglen fonitro ni ar Afon Dyfrdwy, afon sy’n fynegai o bwys cenedlaethol, yn

dangos bod y llif eogiaid yn 2016 ymhlith yr isaf mewn 25 mlynedd o fonitro.

Sewin aeddfed

 Mae gennym hefyd 33 prif afon sewin, gydag asesiadau’n dangos bod 15 (45%) o’r stociau

‘Mewn Perygl’ neu ‘Yn Debygol o fod mewn Perygl’ yn 2015.

 Ystociau yn ne-orllewin Cymru sy’n peri’r pryder mwyaf.

www.cyfoethnaturiol.cymru Tudalen 2 o 4

 

Eogiaid a brithyll ifanc – canlyniadau monitro 2016

 Roedd ein gwaith monitro blynyddol yn 2016 yn dangos gostyngiad amlwg yn nifer y silod

eogiaid a brithyllod a oedd yn tarddu o silio yng ngaeaf 2015/16. Roedd hefyd gostyngiad

cyffredinol yn niferoedd pysgod hŷn a oedd yn tarddu o silio yn 2014/15.

 Nid oes cynsail i’r canlyniadau hyn. Roedd yr effaith yn helaeth ledled Cymru, gyda

dirywiadau tebyg yn cael eu hadrodd ar afonydd yn Lloegr, yr Alban, Iwerddon a Ffrainc.

Mae hyn yn awgrymu bod ffactorau achosol cyffredinol ar raddfa eang.

 O ganlyniad i’r effaith sylweddol hon ar raddfa eang, mae niferoedd isel o eogiaid a sewin

yn dychwelyd yn fwy tebygol mewn llawer o afonydd yn 2018–21, ond yn benodol yn 2019

a 2020.

Ein hymateb

O ystyried cyflwr dirywiedig stociau eogiaid, ein huchelgais yw na fydd unrhyw eogiaid aeddfed yn

cael eu lladd o fwriad gan y pysgodfeydd yn 2017. Felly, rydym yn annog pawb sy’n pysgota â

gwialen a rhwyd i ryddhau’r yr holl eogiaid maent yn eu dal yn wirfoddol.

Er mwyn cyflawni hyn, rydym yn gofyn i’r holl glybiau pysgota, cymdeithasau pysgota a

pherchnogion pysgodfeydd gyflwyno eu rheolau eu hunain i sicrhau bod yr holl eogiaid, a chyfran

uwch o sewin mwy, yn cael eu dychwelyd i’r afon yn fyw ac yn iach.

Rydym hefyd yn gofyn i reolau pysgodfeydd gael eu diwygio i ddod â dulliau sy’n niweidio pysgod i

ben. Yn y ffordd hon, bydd gan bysgod wedi’u rhyddhau’r tebygolrwydd mwyaf o fyw a chyfrannu at

stociau pysgod trwy silio’n llwyddiannus.

YROPSIYNAU SY’N CAEL EU FFAFRIO GENNYM AR GYFER RHEOLI YMELWA AR

BYSGOD AEDDFED

Yn y cyfamser, rydym yn parhau i baratoi achos technegol y bydd cynigion ar gyfer rheoli pysgota

yn y dyfodol yn seiliedig arno.

Mae ein cynigion amlinellol fel a ganlyn:

  • Mesurau rheoli is-ddeddfwriaethol newydd sy’n gofyn am y canlynol:

– Mesurau dal a rhyddhau statudol cyflawn (dim lladd) ar gyfer pysgodfeydd gwialen a

rhwyd ledled Cymru (gyda’r eithriad tebygol ar gyfer afonydd lle yr ystyrir ei bod yn

debygol nad yw stociau ‘Mewn Perygl’ neu ‘Ddim mewn Perygl’).

 

– Mesurau rheoli ychwanegol ar gyfer gwialenni a rhwydau lle ystyrir bod stociau o

sewin mewn cyflwr gwael. Mae’n bosibl y bydd mesurau rheoli’n cynnwys y

canlynol: hyd slot (terfyn ar hyd y pysgodyn y gellir ei gadw), diwygiadau i dymhorau

pysgota a’r defnydd o amodau dalfa ar gyfer rhwydi i gyfyngu nifer y tagiau sgerbwd

a ddyroddir, ac o ganlyniad nifer sewin a gymerir, i lefelau cynaliadwy.

– Lle bynnag mae mesurau dal a rhyddhau ar waith ar gyfer pysgota gwialen,

mesurau rheoli statudol ychwanegol i atal y defnydd o ddulliau nad ydynt yn

gydweddus â niferoedd uchel o bysgod yn cael eu rhyddhau’n byw. Mae’n bosibl y

bydd y rhain yn cynnwys gwaharddiadau rhag pysgota ag abwyd, a’r defnydd o

fachau adfachog a bachau triphlyg.

 

www.cyfoethnaturiol.cymru Tudalen 3 o 4

 

  • Gorchymyn Cyfyngu ar Rwydi diwygiedig:

– Er nad ydym yn cynnig lleihau nifer y trwyddedau sydd ar gael o dan delerau’r

Gorchymyn Cyfyngu ar Rwydi cyfredol, byddwn yn cynnig diwygio isddeddfwriaethau

i atal pobl rhag mynd ag unrhyw eogiaid ac i gyfyngu nifer sewin a

allai gael eu lladd. Felly, rydym yn ystyried ymgynghori ar Orchymyn Cyfyngu ar

Rwydi ‘dim newid’.

CASGLIAD

Mae stociau eogiaid yng Nghymru gryn dipyn o dan y lefel rydym yn ei hystyried yn gynaliadwy ac yn ddymunol.

Mae rhai o’n stociau ni o sewin yr un mor isel ac mewn cyflwr anghynaliadwy.

Mae parhau i ladd pysgod pan fydd stociau’n isel yn peri risg annerbyniol.

Os ydym am amddiffyn ein pysgodfeydd, eu helpu i adfer a sicrhau eu bod yn gydnerth rhag

pwysau yn y dyfodol, rhaid inni uchafu nifer y pysgod sy’n goroesi i silio. Mae hyn yn hanfodol, tra

bo gwaith arall yn parhau i adfer cynefinoedd afonol.

Yn ystod tymor 2017, rydym yn gofyn i bawb gynyddu eu hymroddiad tuag at y canlynol:

Polisi gwirfoddol i beidio â lladd eogiaeogiaid trwy gydol 2017 ar gyfer yr holl bysgodfeydd

gwialen a rhwyd yng Nghymru

Pysgotwyr i ddefnyddio ond dulliau sy’n rhoi’r cyfle gorau i fyw i bysgod sy’n cael eu

dychwelyd.
