Petition calling on the government to ban gill netting during the close season to protect bass stocks.
The European union have done their best to reverse the damage done to the bass fish stocks, yet the UK government has decided to ignore the basic facts and allow gill netting to continue.
Gill netting should also be prohibited during the closed season. A single gill nett can wipe out hundreds of fish in one swoop, so how can this be acceptable? It makes a mockery of the restrictions placed on recreational anglers.
The current restrictions on recreational anglers should also be in place on commercial activities.
