Here is an update on the situation regarding the listing of trout as invasive and the new (2020) AIS regulations.  The implementation date was extended to March 1 to allow deliberations by a task team of which FOSAF is a member and which includes senior DEFF officials. The task team met for the second time on Friday 5 February to discuss the various areas of significant concern for the whole trout value raised by the AIS listing and the regulations and to see whether an acceptable solution could be found.  Progress has been made but at this stage no information can be made public pending a decision by the Minister on a possible further extension of the implementation date, which is awaited. We will advise you of her decision immediately we are advised of this.
