The oyster fishery is still managed under rules which restrict the season, days and hours of fishing effort, and prohibit the use of power, whilst restricting the size of oysters which may be moved from their natural beds.
It is to be hoped that the recent debacle, with South West Water discharging sewage into the river-mouth, off St. Mawes, does not result in the loss of the fishery due to the oyster beds becoming smothered in fine "purified" sewage.
We have been requested to call attention to the practice where oyster dredgers in the Falmouth harbour have lately adopted of taking the seeds or spawn to the great detriment of the fishery in future years.
