Bouley Bay change aims to end dispute

Jersey's port authority has stepped in to deal with a dispute between fishermen and other users of Bouley Bay.

Fishermen's pots and nets were getting tangled with the propellers and chains of boats moored in the Bay on Jersey's north Coast.

The port authority found the boundaries of the harbour were not well defined and were open to misinterpretation.

New rules have been agreed and are due to come into effect from 1 February.

They intend to make it clearer where boats can be moored and where fishermen can use pots and nets in the bay.

Barry Goldman, from the Port of Jersey, said a compromise solution had been agreed by the various parties who use it.

He said he was hopeful the bay users would be able to move forward together.
