If bass fishing is what makes your day, you may want to have a look at this petition: http://petitions.pm.gov.uk/BassMLS/
Why ? Because the previous decision that was adopted to raise the MLS to 40cm has just been abandoned...
This petition is aimed to get the government to raise the Minimum Landing Size for Bass (Dicentrarchus labrax) to 45cm. This would allow every fish to spawn at least once and allow us to move to a more sustainable Bass stock. We also urge the government to lobby the EU to introduce the MLS in all member states.
Sounds logical enough? Well, not to everybody obviously.
I can't sign the petition myself, what with being born on the wrong side of the channel and such but if you want your kids to be able to catch some seabass, please support this larger MLS.
JK, I don't know if this is the right place to post this message. If you feel it doesn't belong, please just delete it, thank you.
