Get The Nets Out

A number of fixed netters have been illegally targeting sea bass – cynically abusing their “unavoidable by-catch only” allowance.  To stop this, the EU Commission has proposed to restrict the amount of bass they can land to 1% of their total daily catch.

A percentage of catch restriction is the final step needed to make the bass fishery sustainable and transform the quality of bass angling across Northern Europe.

Sussex Net Free Zone

More than 170 sea anglers wrote to Sussex IFCA asking them for a Sussex Net Free Zone out to 2km or the 10m depth contour. However, Sussex IFCA has ignored your request and is currently proceeding with a flawed plan.
