kipper time

1) This was the spawning season for salmon, a period during which fishing was illegal.

In 1624, Matthew Harland of Egton was indicted for suffering his salmon heckes to stand in the Esk in unseasonable times, thereby killing many salmons in the time of kipper. In 1633, Aldborough tenants were said to have killed fish at illegal times, viz, Kipper tyme.
