SAVE OUR SEA BASS
Get the nets out! – November 2016 Campaign Update
Our sincere thanks to everyone who helped us lobby the EU Commission. They have listened and proposed that in 2017 the Northern Sea Bass fishery should be restricted to just recreational anglers and commercial hook & line fishermen.
We now have an unprecedented opportunity to make the bass fishery sustainable and transform the quality of bass angling across Northern Europe.
But we must fight hard between now and 13th December, when the EU Fisheries Ministers consider the proposal, to make sure they do not water it down. Remember, last year they betrayed us by increasing the vessel catch limit for fixed netters by 30% and creating damaging exemptions from the moratorium!
