Because a friend of mine said that boats under 'S' category are illegal and he suggested that I switch to MFC


PS: @ Effects once a post is started in English we keep it that way. Same applies if started in Maltese. So please in this post express yourself in English. Thanks regards Shanook

Bigboy, are you sure that you can go "fishing" with S registered boats for everything, i.e. with parit, konz etc?Huh  The info I have here is not the same as you are implying....

For recreational fishing as the others have pointed out S is fine. Only brand new vessels will be accepted on the MFC register therefore as yours is already registered like the others have pointed out you will have to remain as S.

You can fish for most things, it's only if you want to consider MFB (part time commercial fisherman) and then Bigboy and some others can best advise you.

Translation of the highlighted part.....

The use of any nets and longlines of swordfish tuna and albacore may not be used by vessels in this catagory (Recreational 'S' and MFC). In this catagory however other mthods may be used such as bottom longlining, traps and trolling as per Subsiduary legislation 425.01, Fishing Regulations.


Fish caught on recreational vessels is to be kept for personal consumption and cannot be commercialised... i.e. it cannot be sold.

it can only be sold if all proceeds go to charity.

Shaftbomb my friend with s and mfc you can fish with all types of gear except surface longlines for tuna, sworfish and albacore, and also with nets. But you can use bottom longlines and even octopus traps.

Last time i was at the fisheries to collect some papers regarding the big boat i asked again about s and mfc and rita told me do not bother about it because there is no difference.

Also i was told that if the big boat which is mfb has and problems with the engines we can use the small boat by obtaining a fisheries permission !!!
