NFFO are getting in a bit of a tizz over the criteria that will be used to select two new appointees to the Seafish Board which they say have been deliberately set to leave the mainstream English, Welsh and Northern Irish catching sectors without a voice.

They have bitterly condemned the criteria which specifically require “knowledge, understanding and expertise in the catching sector and its impact in Scotland.”

They suggest “The intention is to strengthen the already strong Scottish voice on the Seafish Board, whilst leaving the mainstream catching sector south of the border without a voice. It is an affront to natural justice and any sense of fairness or balance”, said NFFO Chief Executive Barrie Deas.

IMHO - Not quite as big an affront to natural justice, fairness or balance as the lack of meaningful inclusion of RSA bodies, especially in Scotland, in matters which impact their sport.

BTW - If they are searching for candidates with a knowledge of the impact of the catching sector, I suggest they just wander along the coastline - there'll be plenty of anglers there with that knowledge.

I bet there wouldn't be Seaside, 99% would not know or care about any thing you were talking about

Hi Seaside

The biggest affront to natural justice as I see it is the goverment and its puppet department DEFRA because of extra votes and taxes have leeched onto the anglers and are discriminating against commercial by pandering to a supposed sport. Affront to natural justice is when commercial fishermens jobs and income is undermined by so called sport anglers who have their own boring jobs. This could only ever happen in this bloody country you chose your sport if you do not like it pick another one

Hi Steve
Are the jobs of those who earn their living from RSA less important than those of commercial fishermen?

 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..

A bit like 'Nobody is stopping you from enjoying the forest'. Oh, let me remind you. We've cut down all the old trees but now plenty of Christmas trees in there, max 1.5 meters. Enjoy!


Hello Fishingsfine

But that ain't true iether, plenty enough oak trees about here.
