You may have read in the press, fishing press and internet about the Scottish Governments consultation on introduce a licensing system for killing wild salmon in Scotland.
Like most organisation affected the DAA as an Association will consider the proposal and make appropriate representations (comments/suggestions/criticism) to Ministers.
It is also an opportunity for anglers as an individual to make a contribution to an important, and perhaps the first a number of, change to fisheries legislation in the coming years
It your opportunity to have your say, make comments or suggestions that could change the way that fishing in Scotland develops. It sounds a bit scary and/or complicated making a representation to Ministers but it really is quite straightforward. To quote the Ayrshire Fisheries Trust website
If you support the proposal, tell them. If you disapprove, let them know and why. If you have better ideas, then it’s not too late to make the Government sit up and listen and perhaps change their ideas.
IF YOU DO NOTHING THEN YOU CAN”T REALLY COMPLAIN ABOUT WHAT HAPPENS!
The closing date is 30th April 2015.
