Nick, i can confirm the above.  The agreement reached with the fisheries dept states that recreational fishermen can apply for the BFT permit throught he Federation, or by contacting the fisheries directly.  It is a fact that there are some clubs in Malta that are not members of the Federation, or members of the MFF.  So, to eliminate any discrimination, it was agreed that anglers may apply directly with the fisheries dept.

All, there seems to be some confusion following the Fisheries Dept press release.  The Fisheries Dept is obliged to issue a press release and process applications from recreational fishermen.
However, the Federation and MFF have agreed with the Fisheries Dept that in order to simplify and speeed up the process, the Federation Secretary Dr. Joe Carabott Damato is authorised to process applications for interested recreational fishermen applying for tha BFT permit.
This agreement was reached during discussions with between the Federation + MFF and the Fisheries Dept.
To further simplify matters, the MFF agreed that we should only keep ONE SINGLE POINT OF CONTACT that being Dr. Joe Carabott Damato.  Please follow the instructions as follows:

 
Fill in the requested data and sign it. Include as attachment a copy of your vessel license.
 
Either send through email to dr.carabott@marcompmalta.com
 
Or mail to Dr.Joe Carabott Damato
               47, Sacred Heart Promenade
               Birzebbuga   BBG1603
 
Please note that:
 
a) MFA and MFB are not eligible.
 
b) Trailer carried vessels ‘home port’ section on application is not applicable (N/A).
 
Any query use above email or mob no 79958522

Guys, I have a question. The conditions on the BFT application state that "No fishing within the fish farm boundaries is permitted". Does this mean that fishing is ALLOWED outside the buoys and ropes of the fish farm please? Also, are there any application fees not listed for the application? Thanks Smiley

If you are fishing near to fish farms - if fishing fish outside the big yellow buoys.

Just a word of thought, i would not personally fish near to farms. There are far better places if i have to fish outside the fishfarm boundaries.

You can still attract tuna if you are anchored just outside the perimeter.

Re topic:  The permits says: no fishing permiting within Fishfarm Boundaries. 

My opinion is that one has to be careful on what marks he takes this point from. Some Tuna Farms have the surrounding rope, though this does not mean that you are out of the boundaries, because their might be Lateral marks few metres away that mark a rectangular area were the fish farm is positioned.  Therefore while fishing with the farms we need to be more careful about as you might think you are at the right place and infact you are not. The lateral marks are the 4/5 buoys surrounding the farm were they have flashing light during the night.  Inside this area is considered as private owned by the owner of the farm.

Yep, well said. the fish farms 6km out of m`scala have no ropes and the marks are situated very far away from the cages , more than 500m I think.
