Save the date! On 30 November, the Forum on Recreational Fisheries and Aquatic Environment will organise an event on the contribution of the recreational fisheries sector on biodiversity protection and restoration. The conference will be co-chaired by MEP Niclas Herbst & MEP Rodriguez Ramos and will take place in the European Parliament in Brussels from 16:00 to 18:00. Following that, a cocktail reception will be held in the PHS 12th floor Restaurant from 18:15.
Recreational angling clubs and associations across Europe are engaged in many nature protection and restoration projects ranging from habitat and spawning grounds restoration to dam removal and environmental education. Angling clubs and associations play a key role in designing and implementing such projects, as well as in involving a wide diversity of European citizens into them.
Anglers are thus key players for the EU to reach its biodiversity objectives in 2030. This event will show a collection of nature restoration projects undertaken by the European Anglers Alliance’s members in Europe and supported by the tackle industry. It will also aim at drawing out best practices as well as recommendations which can help improving the EU policies, including the Nature Restoration Law which is currently being discussed by EU institutions.
This RecFishing Forum event will be the occasion to highlight the recreational fisheries sector’s contribution to society thanks to concrete examples of the work undertaken by the recreational fisheries sector and discuss how the EU and Member State can further support this work which helps implementing the Biodiversity Strategy and reaching the EU’s environmental goals.
