Jul 20,2007 SACN

'Sea fishing is an area of exclusive European Community competence under the EC Common Fisheries Policy.  Therefore the offences in these Regulations will not apply to fishing causing bycatch of protected species (non-intentional capture or killing), provided those responsible for it have taken any reasonable steps that can be taken to comply with Community legislation regulating fishing activity.'
