House of Commons Debate on Bass

Scott Mann, MP for North Cornwall and a keen recreational angler, has done a fantastic job in securing a three hour back-bench debate on bass in the House of Commons on Thursday 11 February to discuss the motion: “This House believes that the recent EU restrictions on recreational bass fishing are unfair and fail to address the real threat to the future viability of UK bass stocks”.

This is a rare and very important opportunity to influence the future of recreational bass angling by getting our arguments for a sustainable bass fishery heard in detail by key decision-makers. Please write to your MP asap telling them that you want them to attend the debate and that you would like them to give their strong support to our campaign for a bass fishery run to maximise the environmental, social and economic benefits for society as a whole, by giving priority to recreational bass angling.

You can do this by following the link below. Please include in your email the link to the Angling Trust Fishing Lines briefing on bass, so your MP is fully briefed.

A few minutes of your time to send a brief email will help no end.

The greater the opportunities to catch bass like this; the better it is for both anglers and the economy
