    Default Latest EA madness

    Be interesting to see what people think of this:

    Potential extension to the Yorkshire and North East coastal sea trout netting season
    - Environment Agency
    - Citizen Space


    Are the EA in the NE living in some parallel universe? My views on the EA are known. Poorly led, lacking the will to tackle major issues or resort to law. Unfit for purpose really.

    Sad.

    In this case, I am led to believe that the EA are doing what their minister instructed them to do. The minister (who would sign off the amended byelaw) may be open to persuasion if a sound, evidence-based argument is made.

    Totally agree, its more than madness - checkout the small passage of text below I have copied from the Executive summary

    The impact of an extended sea trout net fishery on sea trout stocks is less certain. The trial results
    in the North East show an average reduction in catches of sea trout of around 30% and of around
    65% in Yorkshire compared to recent net catches.
    Catches from both trials indicate an extension to the current sea trout netting season is likely to be
    economically viable.


    You could not make it up !!!

    Its frustrating too when the rivers you fish all have netting berths still opperating at the river mouths. Alot of tyne beats are asking for catch and release and the nets are still allowed to land fish.

    Dee (Welsh) Fisheries bought all netting licences and donated them to the EA (NRW). Not fished except one for scientific purposes.
    Result?
    A lot of money spent.
    Increase in seal population (with some up to 10 miles off the tide).
    Further decrease in salmon.
    I think I've got this work life balance thingy right.

    That is to say I spend more time in work thinking about fishing than I spend fishing and thinking about work!
