If you discover muntions – be careful!
Despite long periods underwater, munitions can still be extremely dangerous and should always be treated with caution. Always follow safe working procedures when dealing with munitions. Before reporting munitions via the FIPAD, they must be made safe or identified as inert by the police or a military Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD) Officer. Once items have been confirmed as safe and suitable for handling they should be reported through the Protocol. If you have any queries regarding the reporting munitions, please contact the Fishing Protocol team.
