Default article 47 shore anglers off the hook

10 Feb 09 - From a speech today by Jo Borg Member of the European Commission - Responsible for Fisheries and Maritime Affairs




Rapid - Press Releases - EUROPA

Before I come to the end of my intervention let me say a few words about our proposal to reform the way we control fisheries activities in the future.

The most famous words contained in our proposal must be the words "recreational fishing". In some Member States our proposals in this regard have been misinterpreted alarming citizens that the Commission wants to start controlling millions of hobby anglers and impose quota restrictions on them. This would obviously be a crazy thing to do, and it is therefore not at all our intention to implement such a ludicrous system. Let me make clear once and for all that the hobby angler who catches a few kilos of fish every time he goes out fishing and uses it for his private consumption, will not be covered by the control regulation, even if he catches fish like cod which is under a recovery plan.

clarification is being sought on the next bit

There are however facts and figures in abundance that show that certain forms of so called recreational fishing have a dangerously considerable impact on certain vulnerable fish stock. We cannot just keep restricting severely professional fishing on those stocks but give the recreational fishermen a free ride. They have to contribute as well to the conservation effort. It is with this balance in mind that the Commission will approach the issue in the context of negotiations.

We look forward to working with you on this question, on the whole control regulation and of course also on the reform of our policy. In any event, I know that we at the Commission can always rely on the Parliament to stimulate and support us in improving the lot of Europe's citizens.

Default What is a Bona Fide R.S.A.?

It is vital that a clear definition is made re. the term 'Recreational Sea Angler'.

As I've always maintained, for an angler to be classified as a bona fide 'RSA'
he/she should be committed to pursue his/her sport for the 'recreational' aspect of a day afloat or on a beach,estuary or riverbank with any fish killed as an added bonus.

The others who purport to be 'Recreational Sea Anglers' and view the situation from the 'commercial' aspect, whether it be from the sale of fish or revenue obtained by the charter of their vessels, are not true RSAs and should not be part of our equation.

Let the 'Commercials' stand alone. Their sole reason for wanting to be grouped with the millions of bona fide RSAs is for strength of numbers. Their very presence in the equation clouds the issues and weakens our case.
