Keen amateur fisherman in Monaco will have to take their rods elsewhere following the government’s introduction of a prohibition on fishing on the Fontvieille breakwater.

The ban will last until April 2018. The one-year interdiction will allow the authorities to develop and publish new regulations for recreational fishing.

Fishermen have caused considerable pollution in recent years, including broken fishing lines that have created problems for underwater flora and fauna.

The one-year moratorium pending the publication of new rules will also help the harbour’s marine life to recover.
