With the objective of better understanding the fish populations of the Landes, the Fishing Federation sets up monitoring of catches based on the voluntary participation of fishermen.
From pike to predators
The establishment of the capture window for the pike species at the level of the Landes department, will be accompanied by voluntary monitoring of catches from 2022. This monitoring will also be extended to all other so-called carnivorous species (black bass, pike, perch, pike perch and catfish) in order to observe the impact of our actions (regulations, developments, etc.) on these populations.
the carp species also
With a similar objective to the monitoring of predator catches, the collection of data on the carp species will make it possible to better understand our environments, to see the evolution over time of populations and to evaluate the management implemented.
For fishermen wishing to collaborate in this major follow-up, d paper capture notebooks will be available (sent by the Federation, AAPPMAs, retailers, etc.). U“digital” participation will also be possible via an online application.
Launch date of follow-ups
The notebooks will be available from December 15, 2021 for a monitoring start date set at 1 er January 2022 and running until December 31, 2022.
Based on anonymity
The data will be collected and used only for scientific purposes. Fishing time, length of fish caught, date, etc …
