Stag­gered that zan­der aren’t be­ing pro­tected

Angling Times (UK) - - YOUR FISHING WEEK -

IN AN age where preda­tor fish­ing is putting a lot of money into the pock­ets of tackle shops and man­u­fac­tur­ers, I am stag­gered that the au­thor­i­ties aren’t do­ing more to pro­tect zan­der stocks.

I un­der­stand that they didn’t orig­i­nate from this coun­try but nei­ther did carp, which are widely ac­cepted.

The En­vi­ron­ment Agency doesn’t seem to care less about zan­der and I really can’t see it push­ing for a change in leg­is­la­tion to give them proper pro­tec­tion.

These fish have be­come a pop­u­lar tar­get with an­glers in re­cent years and proper laws should be in place to give them the op­por­tu­nity to thrive. Rob Hud­son, Ket­ter­ing
