Recommended Posts

If anyone is interested this blog and videos show how Black Bream go about preparing to get a mate, spawning and the males looking after the nest

Would it be such a bad thing to ban catching Black Bream between April and June to allow the fish stocks to increase to allow us all to enjoy the sport for years to come?

Trouble is they get caught in nets and pots almost as a by-catch but sold as a welcome addition I suspect.

Agreed any ban must involve everyone RSA’s and commercial 

 

To look at very rough figures if there was a  3 fish limit take the average charter boat with 8 anglers = 25 fish (to round things up) out say 5 days = 125 a week x say 5 charter boats = 625 fish per week!

Add all the private boats and you will soon be up around 800 fish per week

You just need a trawler to sweep through and I suspect the number could easily double.

Without knowing what the current fish stock levels are no area could sustain that number of losses.
