Salmon and Sea Trout Stock Plan ‘Punishing’ Welsh Anglers

The recent NRW proposals covered in my last post did make the BBC Wales TV news yesterday.
Unfortunately, when I checked the BBC website the next morning the item had already been relegated from the front page!
Angling Trust chief executive Mark Lloyd said “Anglers are killing a few hundred fish across Wales. But many thousands of fish are being killed with slurry and sediment and pesticides off fields … If anglers are over-regulated, they’ll just go abroad to fish or fish in England where there are voluntary restrictions.”
Fisheries are worth about £150m to the economy each year and support about 1,500 jobs.
I did some digging and found the full article, though. Here is the link: bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-41021757.
