Angling Trust calls for action on the declining fish stocks in the River Severn and Teme

February 19th, 2013 by Zoe Olsberg 0 comments

The Angling Trust has written to the Environment Agency calling for action to reverse the decline in fish stocks caused by floods and predation in the River Severn and its tributaries, notably the River Teme.

The Trust says that, because of the decline in fish numbers on these rivers, clubs and businesses are losing members, day ticket and tackle sales on a daily basis. It says these are important rural businesses which rely on healthy fish stocks to continue employing staff and providing benefits to the local economy and to people and communities. As a result, the Trust is calling on the Environment Agency to draw up a Fishery Action Plan to restore coarse fish stocks in the rivers.
