  • Sussex IFCA embarks on a Bream tagging programme

    The Sussex Inshore Fisheries and Conservation authorities is asking anglers to help with their latest research project by looking out for any Bream they might catch in the Kingmere area which have tags.

    The purpose of the tagging is to better understand the behaviour and movements of black bream subsequent to capture. It is hoped information from the studies will contribute toward future management within the MCZ. Information from returned tagged fish is essential for the study’s results. The project relies on your involvement and providing details from tagged fish you’ve caught.

    What should you do when I catch a tagged fish?

    1. Please avoid damaging or harming the fish (if possible handle with a wet cloth and carefully unhook).

    2. Record the Reference number on the tag and when and where (if possible Latitude and Longitude from your GPS) the fish was capture.

    3. Only if it’s quick and easy photograph the fish and record length and weight

    4. Return alive

    5. Send details of your capture to the Sussex IFCA at 12a, Riverside Business Centre, Brighton Road, Shoreham-by-Sea, West Sussex, BN43 6RE Tel: 01273 454407 Fax: 01273 464668 Email: [email protected] Website:
