Campaigning for More and Bigger Sea Bass

We Get Your Voice Heard

Save our Sea Bass gives a voice to sea anglers in the UK and across Europe who want the bass fishery managed to deliver more and bigger bass for sea anglers.

Our goal is to recover the bass stock to a level of abundance and to increase sea anglers’ share of the catch back to the levels last seen in the 1970s and 1980s, when commercial bass fishing pressure was low.  Put simply: more and bigger sea bass.

This means keeping commercial fishing pressure low to allow the stock to recover and targeting abundance rather than maximising catches.

With your help, we achieved huge and unprecedented cuts in commercial sea bass fishing pressure that halted the stock decline. In 2018, we helped sea anglers fight against the unfair and unwarranted zero bag limit and win back a 1 fish per day bag limit.  In 2019, we campaigned successfully for sea anglers to get a 2 fish bag limit for 9 months – a sustainable level of fishing supported by the scientists’ recommendations.
