Mullet

Mullet are caught all year around in west Wales, but the majority of catches take place during summer months.

Throughout the west coast of Wales fishermen catch Mullet either by netting drift or ring netting.

The Welsh Mullet fishery has a strict minimum size put in by Welsh Government to insure the fishery is sustainable for future generations.

Day boats that take part in the fishery have been equipped with insulated fish tubs through European Fisheries Fund, 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.
