Give it try barry i bet you would be pleasantly suprized.

It worked for me at christmas, a couple of big pollack fillets and a black bream for a haunch of roe deer! No marketing, just a chat over a pint between mates :D
Eating wild caught fish is good for my health, reduces food miles and keeps me fit trying to catch them........it's my choice to do it, not yours to stop me!

are they saying that you no longer will be able to sell?


just ignore it barry. as we will do here.
when old pepe comes past on friday mornings with some "sepia" he has just caught, i will still give him a couple of euros for a drink later.
When im in England, i like to spin for bass from the shore. mainly on the estuary/ beach at Exmouth.

What i catch oversize, gets eaten, either by myself with friends, or given to friends of theirs, in exchange for money for a few drinks.

let the tree huggers spit their dummies out, it wont make a bit of difference to me, and im sure many others.

Hiyer Captain cojones, during the summer i really get a kick out of giving me mates etc some of me fish, they can't buy what i catch as shop bought is cr@p in comparison, as a rsa i don't consider selling or swapping, it just don't enter me head. And no i don't have a halo thats stuck. Anyway, i spend time down south devon every year, love the place, so we should meet up and i'll show you how to catch some real fish. Got some real good skipper mates down there :D

The question i asked was i'm sure without a motor it was ok to sell, however with the new eu regs, i don't know if they have now turned into a crime?

Won't work for me big cod, as i would have to change from being rsa to fishing for gain. Don't want to go down that road. The men in suits won't like it if it caught on, as their wages and pensions would suffer. So they could quite simply put on bag limits and licences if they percieved a problem in getting their share, if you get me drift.

In addition when does it become, not alright to do. Even a commercial if he used your argument that it's ok no money changed hands, is that ok? If i swap me fillets this year for a new car as my one is getting old, is that ok?

If you was to invite me over for a dinner of deer spare rib Worms, i could live with that, don't tell me where you got it from though. B) No spuds though, can't stand em. :D

 Free to choose apart from the ones where the trust poked their nose in. Common eel. tope. Bass and sea bream. All restricted.

 
New for 2016 TAT are the main instigators for the demise of the u k bass charter boat industry, where they went screaming off to parliament and for the first time assisting so called angling gurus set up bass take bans with the e u using rubbish exaggerated info collected by ices from anglers, they must be very proud.

Upgrade, the door has been closed with regards to anglers being linked to the e u superstate and the failed c f p. So TAT will no longer need to pay monies to the EAA anymore as that org is no longer relevant to the u k . Goodbye to the europeon anglers alliance and pathetic restrictions from the e u.

Angling is better than politics, ban politics from angling.
 
Consumer of bass. where is the evidence that the u k bass stock need angling trust protection. Why won't you work with your peers instead of castigating them. They have the answer.

Recipie's for mullet stew more than welcomed.
 
Angling sanitation trust and kent and sussex sea anglers org delete's and blocks rsa's alternative opinion on their face book site. Although they claim to rep all.
 
new for 2014. where is the evidence that the south coast bream stock need the angling trust? Your campaign has no evidence. Why won't you work with your peers, the inshore under tens? As opposed to alienating them? Angling trust failed big time re bait digging, even fish legal attempted to intervene and failed, all for what, nothing.
 
Looks like the sea angling reps have been coerced by the ifca's to compose sea angling strategy's that the ifca's at some stage will look at drafting into legislation to manage the rsa, because  they like wasting tax payers money. That's without asking the rsa btw. You know who you are..

Cor, just think Norm, i can get off the boat this weekend following the slaughter, nip into the sailors, few bevies for a few fillets. Upto asda, see if the manager wants to play ball over a turkey. Down the garage and swap a few more fillets for a tank full. Sure i can go in the front door of the local restaurant, fillets in hand, for a steak dianne, as no doubt i will be sick of the sight of the amount of fish i have to shovel into the freezer. Same as me local chippy, Won't need to waste any gas on cooking them anymore as i'll just pop down there for me supper, never have to use me wallet again. Yup sounds like utopia, to me. :rolleyes: ;)



That would be naughty Barry as can be seen on the SACN website in DEFRA's reply to a letter from Leon in 2005

Barry eltons done a good one here nothing wrong with GIVEING fish away to anybody you could write all sorts into giveing fish away to friends or anybody else for that matter there a lot of anglers in this country who like to catch some eat for themslves never mind to give away a better topic probably would have ben why its been the worst year on record for shore fishing for cod on east coast and why.

Having read this thread deeply , i think the real reason it is frowned upon is by the authorites. The authorities want their cut on you selling the fish and if they don't, then you can't sell it. A bit pathetic really isn't it?

For what its worth....i have given away plenty of fish in my life with many a recepient asking " how much do i owe you?" ...."nothing , just get me a pint if you enjoyed it" was my reply. I have received red meat , veg , presents , money and COUNTLESS pints 'paid-on' at the bar with so many thanks that if there was a penny attached to them i would be a millionaire....SERIOUSLY. An angler enjoying his catch with his family and friends is something that started probably by cavemen and will stand proud while ever there are fish left in the sea.

Plenty more fish in the sea.

It basically sounds like;

If you do not run a business which sells fish (and pays tax to the government), then you are not permitted to sell fish.

Thanks for the link seafoods.

According to this bit it's not a problem unless you intend to:

Quote:

Finally, with regard to bartering, unless this was systematic and on a large scale with a clear intent to circumvent the regulations I think it would be difficult in law to prove that a sale was taking place.

end quote.


No car then. :huh:

At the time Leon wrote to defra, he appears to have information as to the extent of it, would be good if Leon could provide the evidence or was it hearsay at the time. hearsay can cause a lot of damage, especially if it's what the recipiant wants to hear.

Quote:

The quantities of fish involved in this trade are quite substantial and do have an effect, particularly on inshore stocks.
