Fish - Salmon and trout - Licence to fish
Fish Salmon and trout. The appeal concerned the legality, under the European Convention on Human Rights, of licensing conditions imposed by the appellant Environment Agency on the respondent, restricting salmon-fishing in the Severn Estuary. The Supreme Court, applying settled law to the facts, upheld the lower courts' decisions, which held that the Environment Agency's decision to impose such conditions on fishing licences granted to the respondent had breached his rights under art 1 of the First Protocol to the Convention. However, the court noted that the case was exceptional on the facts.
