IFI has established a National Bass Programme to collect data on bass in order to provide scientific advice to support management and conservation of Ireland’s bass resource. Bass is Ireland’s only marine fish species which is managed for angling.
The programme is being developed to determine the status of bass stocks and also to improve understanding of their ecology and biology in Ireland for the long-term sustainability of the species.
All assistance with the National Bass Programme would be greatly appreciated. If you would be interested in sending IFI bass scale samples, we can provide you with a scale envelope pack.
This is a step in the correct direction in my opinion and Inland Fisheries Ireland really need help to maximise this projects potential. To learn more about the National Bass Programme follow this link: http://www.fisheriesireland.ie/Projects/national-bass-programme.html
