    Default Atlantic Bluefin Tuna: British recreational campaign receives huge boost from Ireland

    Issued by the Angling Trust:

    Angling groups campaigning for the establishment of a UK live release bluefin tuna recreational fishery have warmly welcomed the news that Ireland has secured approval for the introduction of a science-based catch, tag and release research programme utilising Irish recreational anglers.

    Shouldn't be a problem after Brexit. Both Ireland and the UK have not been able to have a legal recreational C&R bluefin fishery because the EU won't give either country a quota due to there being no traditional bluefin fishery.
    “There is no more lovely country than Monmouthshire in early spring. Nowhere do the larks sing quite so passionately, as if somehow inspired by the Welsh themselves. There is a blackbird on every thorn and a cock chaffinch, a twink as they call him there, on every bush...... It moved me profoundly. I had been spared to see another spring, and I thank God for it.”

    And indeed will be better for the tuna off Ireland after brexit!
    Previous years, if any bluefin were caught/seen off Ireland, the Spanish, French, Italian boats turned up and decimated them.
    Would love to think that post brexit we could sink them, but hey ho, we might even end up giving away our fishing rights under Theresas plans.
    (yes, I do realise Ireland will still be in eu post Brexit, but fisheries boundaries will change!)
