I was also advised recently that an avian predator count was voted against and is now off the agenda because it would be too costly, a motion that was apparently supported the Stirling Council rep. to the Board.
Before anyone goes off like a rocket, the rep. is not anyone I know, I am not even sure of his name.
At the risk of being accused of turning this thread political, I would stress that these are the answers to your questions as far as I know. and may not be strictly correct.
If they are not, I would openly apologise on this forum to the Board, but nobody seems to want to engage with anglers on these subjects?Respect My Authorita!!
Getting as many smolts to sea is number 1 priority and not shooting these birds is a massive own goal and the board needs to review their decision not to shoot them.. But as a simple angler on the system it appears there is not much we can do as the board is by design Not accessible to your average angler who has strong views.
Surely when the council levy is up for review and assessment there will be a massive reduction in levy payment to the board due to reduced catches.
Anyway looks like we are left to suck it and see what happens in the future.
