Abstract: The small fyke net was introduced to Ireland in 1963 and has been operated extensively in tidal water ever since. Experiments in freshwater began in Lough Corrib in 1967, conducted by the then Department of Agriculture and Fisheries. In 1970 operation by professional fishermen under special authorisations began. It has been effectively demonstrated by the Department's experiments, by information furnished by the professional fishermen and by observations by local fishermen and the Department's officials that fyke nets could be used for eel fishing without harmful effects on other fish stocks. As a result, the fyke net was listed as a "scheduled engine" in the Fisheries Act, 1980
