Seriously? One person owns these fish? How is this fair to you lowly commoners? Do you Brits actually believe that the royals are better than you because of who their parents were? Is this common knowledge over there? How is this healthy for your self esteem? your fish are OWNED by this idiot.


Yeah, i could never kneel to this wench or her inbred brood.

79. Technically The Queen still owns the sturgeons, whales and dolphins in the waters around the UK. A statute from 1324, at the time of the reign of King Edward II , states that: "Also the King shall have ... whales and sturgeons taken in the sea or elsewhere within the realm." This statute is still valid today, and sturgeons, porpoises, whales and dolphins are recognised as 'Fishes Royal'. When captured within three miles of UK shores, or washed ashore either dead or alive, they may be claimed on behalf of the Crown. Generally, when brought into port, a sturgeon is sold in the usual way, and the purchaser, as a gesture of loyalty, requests the honour of its being accepted by The Queen.

You need a job?

In a country where technicalities in law mean everything in the end, I thought this was funny.

What if these fish mate and make baby fish outside of the 3 mile radius? Is the baby fish then still technically hers or not?


What if you eat a piece of whale from within the 3 mile radius?

Does she own that piece of whale inside of you?

If so then,

What if you excrete it?

Pretty lame rule but who really cares? BTW - Prince William is heir to the throne... not Charles.

Im in York and we still have plenty of weird and wonderful bylaws here. For instance, we can still kill scottish men as long as it is from the city walls and we are using a bow and arrow. We are also allowed to stone catholics on the knavesmire (common land, now york race course). Of course, im not sure how quoting the bylaws would stack up in court.......


Point im making is the same as others above..........old country therefore plenty of old laws / bylaws / statutes. For those not from the motherland that may get confused by these things, the power of the crown dissipated following the civil war and almost disappeared after the second civil war (charles 2).

The subsequent Georges' saw this power base wane further before a brief respite under Victoria. The real power base since these days has been in the influence that royal favour gives within the elite classes - like in the USA there is kudos to gain from being attached to the president, however unpopular the particular incumbent is.

Hope that makes sense and may clear up misunderstandings

Technically Charlie Boy IS heir. But there's no way his mother will abdicate. I'm sure even SHE thinks he's a gibbering fool.

It's an old anachronism, no big deal.

Seems to me that some of our non-UK members are more obsessed with the British Royal Family than we Brits are.
I think it's because of a deep rooted sub-conscious desire to want to belong.

Ask nicely and we might just let you back in the fold.

The technicality is of course, if you're a government dissident and you're fishing and happen to catch a whale they can screw you over hard because you stole from Elizabeth and therefore from the entire commonwealth.



Is this law even real? I remember reading about ridiculous laws on the internet but they seemed to perfectly set up to be a joke.

Trout anyone?
