Default Angling Trust Launches Cormorant Watch Web Site and Calls on Minister to Act to Protect Fish

Issued by the Angling Trust:

The Angling Trust has called on the government to do more to protect rivers and lakes from fish-eating birds.

In a letter to Environment Minister George Eustice, the Angling Trust is demanding a doubling of the number of cormorants licensed to be shot in England annually to 6,000. It also calls for the relaxing of the requirement for evidence that goosanders are damaging fisheries before a licence will be issued.

Is this movement being pushed by fishery owners ? or just by anglers?, why cant we leave wild life alone? isn't there enough damage done by humans to our wild life? perhaps we can sterilise the whole of the out doors and then we wont have any more problems? easker1
