At the North East Fisheries Forum, held at Bowburn Community Centre on the 20th September 2017. Members of the NRAA raised a number of significant questions with regard to the possibility that sea trout netting in the north east fisheries area may be allowed to continue beyond 2018.
Since all anglers, and everyone connected to the sport agree that mixed stock netting should stop immediately, this possibility is of considerable concern. To highlight the consequences of continuing the over exploitation of migratory stocks by nets, the NRAA have written formally to the EA reinforcing the views put forward on the night.
