The following has been taken from the Sea Trout Fishing Forums.
The Association will be sending in some funding but we would like members to support this by sending us an amount they can afford, £ 1, £ 2, £ 3, £ 4, £ 5, Every little helps we must challenge this as it is now obvious that the present system relied on BY Natural Resources Wales for assessing Salmon stocks is not only flawed but bordering as they say in Parliament to be polite: Sir you are a stranger to the Truth.
|A Challenge to NRW/EA/CEFAS Stock Assessments – Support Needed!
A group of us in North Wales have been working closely with the NWATFCC (North West Angling Trust Fisheries Consultative Committee) in order to challenge NRW’s Stock Assessment and Reporting and resulting river classifications. Senior NRW Fisheries Staff seem unable to explain with clarity a number of key areas but will use the defence that they are using the same methodology as the rest of the UK.
• provide an independent evaluation of the validity and efficiency of the England & Wales national river stock status classification model for salmon
1. Cheques should be made payable to Merthyr Tydfil Angling Association who will forward all proceeds to Angling Trust.
Whilst the immediate aim of this money is to fund the independent statistician, after all payments have been met, we have requested that any residual funds be used by the Angling Trust/ Fish Legal to support campaigns which are beneficial to angling in Wales.
Please support this cause as well as making your colleagues and contacts aware of this action.
This appeal is for Fish Legal Angling Trust and any monies collected will be sent to them
The Association is sending this as we will not divulge our members’ personal details to anyone.
