Throughout the west coast of Wales fishermen catch Bass either by netting or commercially by rod and line.

The Welsh Bass fishery is a sustainable fishery with a higher minimum size than the Europe requires, there is also a network of Bass nursery areas around Wales, put in place to protect small Bass during the summer months.

Day boats who via European Fisheries Fund have been equipped with insulated fish tubs, to insure that fish are landed in the best/freshest possible condition.

The fishing industry within west Wales coast is mostly made up of small fishing vessels under 10 metres in length, which have the time they can spend at sea limited by strong tides and Atlantic weather systems which also acts as a natural conservation measure.
