Closed petition Ban gill netting along the Merseyside coastline for boats and shore

I would like a law brought in to make gill netting along the Merseyside coastline illegal.

More details

The Merseyside coastline offers such a vast breeding ground for species of fish we haven't seen for years. I'm fearful that it won't be long before such beautiful creatures become a rarity in our waters. Help us so we can help the mammals and fish of our seas.
