Ireland Driftnets - Help Save the Atlantic Salmon
@ :: Fishing News General ::     Oct 18 2004, 21:08 (UTC+0)
stopnow writes: The continuation of drifting netting for salmon off the coast of Ireland, legal and illegal, represents one of the greatest continuing threats to the survival of the Atlantic salmon. The conservation and scientific arguments in favour of ending this form of exploitation of mixed-stock fisheries are now firmly and incontrovertibly established. As a result all countries in Europe and North America, other than the Republic of Ireland, which have significant salmon flows along their coasts have stopped the practice.

For the first time there is now a single authoritative voice on the subject embracing not just anglers but all those who have a stake in salmon conservation. Successive governments have paid excessive attention to the organised voice of those commercial interests who have almost obliterated the salmon from our rivers. Now there is a countervailing voice representing salmon anglers, fishery owners, who are often significant employers in remote areas, and hotels and guest houses who are even more significant employers.
