development and management of leisure fishing

Directly intended for the practice of fishing and fishermen, these actions are those which refer annually to significant financial and human commitments for our associative structures.

  • Stocking of white fish, predators and trout.
  • Course facilities (launching ramps, secure shelves, parking lots, etc.)
  • Information and communication (signage, publication of brochures, etc.)

All of these actions are aimed at our 25,000 members of the Landes region by trying to best respond to their eclectic practices. We also dedicate a lot of time to raising awareness among younger generations as part of environmental education and fishing initiation actions.

management and protection of aquatic environments

This preponderant part of actions of our associative structures is intended for management, maintenance, study or even restoration of aquatic environments. With fish populations as benchmarks and main skills, we work to better understand, protect and manage in line with the needs of fish fauna.

This substantive work is carried out in collaboration with many technical and institutional actors (river unions, local collectives, departmental and regional councils, water agency, natural park, etc.) which constitute real partners in water management.
