The Angling Trust and the Bass Anglers Sportfishing Society (BASS) are gathering evidence on the economic impacts on charter boats, the tackle trade and the local economy of the unfair landing restrictions that were imposed on recreational bass anglers last December. We will be undertaking a variety of surveys to assess this but we also need to hear from bass anglers themselves.
Please find five minutes to complete the survey below, which is being conducted at Southampton University. All the information will be used to put forward a case to ministers to seek to influence the outcome of the Council of European Fisheries meeting in December 2016 to ensure that this time we get a better deal for bass and for bass anglers.
Thanks for your assistance.
