11th February 2016 - Reference Bass Fishing
I can now confirm that the new EU sea bass regulations were very recently published and are now in force accross the UK. For recreational fishermen, such as youself and your members this means that mandatory catch and release is now applicable until 1st July, following which a 1 fish per day bag limit applies.
