Campaigning for a Sustainable Sea Bass Fishery

Save Our Sea Bass helps you get your voice heard by the sea bass fishery managers.

Get The Nets Out!

November 2018 Campaign Update

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.

We now need to persuade our Fisheries Ministers, George Eustice, to push hard for this to be accepted at the December Fishing Opportunities meeting.

Please click on the link below to send a message to your MP to crank up the pressure.

The future of bass and bass angling is in your hands – don’t let it slip away.
