Thread: Legalities of shooting at sea

    Legalities of shooting at sea

    Has anyone any knowledge of the legalities of shooting at sea from a fishing boat close to land and inshore waters.

    You can shoot within the legal limits as the sea is open to recreation. Essex and other forces have in fact issued section 11 certificates to allow entertainment groups shoot off a boat.

    Why, are you thinking of shooting from a boat on Sutton Bingham Reservoir ;-)

    My first semi-open F.A.C. allowed me to use a .22 rifle at sea, but if the cliffs were less than 100ft high, I had to aim out to sea if within 1 mile of the shoreline. That was in the days when the Southern Sea Fisheries Committee issued Shag permits.

    There was quite famous documentary made in the 70's about a bunch of hooray henrys fishing and shooting off a boat. As I remember they were throwing dead codfish up in the air and shooting at them as well as other bad behaviour.
