(b) The maximum number of fishing engines referred to as draft net (special tidal waters) in column (2) of Schedule 1 opposite the reference to the fishery district of No. 10 (2) or Bangor District in column (1) of Schedule 1, issued in any year shall be based on the average number of fishing licences taken out and fished in the previous 3 years in which fishing licences were issued for the Owenmore River and Owenduff River in the No. 10 (2) or Bangor District.
