Default Angling Trust Lobbies EU for Bass Minimum Size Increase

Issued by the Angling Trust:

The Angling Trust has stepped up the pressure to see the long overdue introduction of a 42cm minimum conservation reference size (MCRS) for both recreational and commercial bass fishing in order to allow the fish an opportunity to spawn successfully before harvesting. The present stock crisis is very much due to overfishing on the spawning grounds as well as a minimum size which allows fishing for juvenile bass before they had the chance to spawn.

It should be 45cm and been implemented years ago.
Makes my blood boil, killing the spawning stock before they've even spawned.
Stupid people.
