Regulatory oversight and control
Federal fishing guards and private guards from local fishing associations (AAPPMA) have carried out numerous tours since the start of the year in parallel with a major campaign to maintain and develop signage (no-kill route black-bass, no-kill pike, temporary and permanent fishing reserves, etc.).
The figures at the end of August
- 978 tours completed
- 9,943 fishermen inspected
- 169 reminders to the regulations carried out
- 125 minutes drawn up
The reasons for the reports and reminders of the regulations
- 66% fishing without card
- 11% fishing in reserve
- 8% fishing during the closed period
- 6% night
- 2% prohibited method
- 7% other
It should be noted that since this year, joint operations have been carried out regularly with the services of the gendarmerie, municipal police and the French Biodiversity Office.
2 training sessions for private guards
In collaboration with the Departmental Directorate of Territories and the Sea (our supervisory administration), a dozen private guards (volunteers) have been trained and will join the 70 volunteer guards of the Landes and the federal daycare.
The implementation of this new department-wide daycare policy was launched in early 2020 with the strengthening of the federal daycare, the FD / AAPPMA and inter-AAPPMA pooling, the monitoring of controls and the accentuation of the rounds of night.
