Jason - to answer your question specifically let me give some context. I have now been employed part-time as the Marine Coordinator for the Angling Trust working with our Head of Marine, David Mitchell to support day to day issues for sea anglers with our Marine Regions - Wyvern Sea Angling, Wessex, Sussex and the IOW and to develop new regions. To do this we need to engage directly with sea anglers and our experience with freshwater is that forums offer an excellent way to meet with, listen to and provide updates on key issues in sea angling. Our recent sea angling survey completed by more than 740 people, is that overwhelmingly they want us to deliver forums on week day evenings and where possible at local clubs. So I approached Brixham SAC with our Wyvern Marine Region and they have agreed to host the foum.
What gets discussed at these forums
Thanks to Wyvern for uploading this information. If you are interested in attending the forum then please have a look at this: www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/angling-trust-wyvern-sea-fishing-forum-tickets-75821035759
Further to below - this will be the 4th forum as you can see, with others in Cornwall, Wessex and Sussex in November. Our aim is to come back to each region twice a year, to hold forums and meet as many sea anglers as possible. The Cornwall event is the first planned and we have almost reached our capacity with 45 people now booked to attend. By the end of this year we will have held forums in each of our Regions and the next one we want to develop - Cornwall. The programme for the initial forums is being set by us consulting with the respective Regions to try and cover hot topics. As you will see if you look at the registration page - we have presentations planned for Brixham on Wrasse fishery issues, Blue Shark and the Devon & Severn IFCA. David Mitchell and I will also give updates from the Angling Trust as well. In the future when we come back to the Region next year we want anglers to tell us who they would want to hear from and what they want to discuss - but this is the first series of forums, so we have had to invite speakers we think will be of interest. I know that several people are interested in the developing Blue Fin tuna issues and we are covering this at the Cornwall forum, but will happily consider this for our next Wyvern forum - IF you tell us you would want this and the presenter is available! I hope this answers your queries. PLEASE do register and come along. We actively support the Anglers National Line Recycling Service and will have a bin to collect any old line!
