Get the nets out! – November 2016 Campaign
We are all well aware of the current state of our wild sea bass fishery … and like before I urge you to take only a few minutes of your time to click on the link (at bottom of page) and make your voice heard!
“Commercial netting has hammered the bass stock. It is now so dangerously low that it may not recover for years. Anglers and conservationists argue that it is time to get rid of the nets. The EU Commission agrees and has proposed banning nets from the bass fishery from next year. These nets also kill sea-birds, seals, porpoises and dolphins. Getting rid of the nets, but retaining recreational fishing and commercial hook & line, will mean a bright and vibrant future for a sustainable bass fishery.”
