CARP CHAT
Want to help get better protection for our threatened
fish stocks from unsustainable predation?
I am writing to inform you that the
Carp Society has responded as an
organisation to the Defra Survey of
Fish eating Birds, but also to urge as
many of you as possible to complete
the on-line survey as individuals. You
have until December 5th 2019 to do
so.
This is probably a once off opportunity to have Cormorants and
Goosander added to the general
licence to shoot, rather than the current arrangement.
With an estimate of 72,000 overwintering birds each eating at least a
pound in weight of fish each day
these birds have had, and continue to
have a devastating effect on our fish
stocks in rivers and lakes all over the
country.
Unless anglers of all disciplines
take the time to respond to the survey
our views will not be taken into
account. Please give time to do so to
protect the future of angling.
The Carp Society will continue to
CALL TO ACTION
work alongside the Predation Action
Group and Angling Trust in attempting to bring about greater protection
of fisheries. This is your chance to
help support our efforts.
Thank You, Derek Stritton
On behalf of the Carp Society. n
