Farage: EU ban on sea anglers wholly disproportionate 

EU ban on sea anglers wholly disproportionate says Nigel Farage MEP 

Commission impaled on hook of angler antagonism by Commission regulation not debated by European Parliament or Council. 

“I hope that more than 800,000 UK sea anglers say dam the European Commission and vote for us to get back control and management of our own waters.” 

Yesterday UKIP Leader and keen angler Nigel Farage MEP called for a total rethink in the EU’s approach to recreational angling. There are over 800,000 recreational anglers in the UK and a new EU regulation will not only massively restrict their rights as fishermen, but also harm the local coastal and fishing economy.

Speaking in the European Parliament in Strasbourg Nigel Farage commented:

What have we done with our declining bass stock? We put a total ban in place for anglers with, after July 1st, a derisory one fish limit per angler.”

“What you’ve done is wholly disproportionate and frankly we’re punishing anglers who didn’t cause the problem.”

“I hope that more than 800,000 UK sea anglers say dam the European Commission and vote for us to get back control and management of our own waters.”
