Those in the fishing trade still have the chance to have their say on proposed new laws.

The Department of Environment, Food & Agriculture wants those in the business to give their views on plans to make having inshore vessel monitoring systems on boats under 12 metres long a compulsory requirement.

Officials say the rules, if approved, would also affect Manx crafts fishing outside of Isle of Man waters.

The survey is available on the DEFA Facebook page and runs until Friday, August 2.
