The Department of Environmental Protection have said that the final Town Hall Meeting to present the results of the 2011 Recreational Fishing Activity Survey will be held on Tuesday [Oct 30] at 7.00pm at Somers Isle Lodge, #2 Fairhaven Lane, Hog Bay Level, Sandys Parish.
The agenda will include the presentation of results from the survey followed by a Question & Answer period. The survey was conducted in two parts: A shoreline survey and a mailing to owners of private vessels.
The primary goal of this survey was to investigate the levels of various forms of recreational fishing in Bermuda and to acquire estimates of the types and numbers of fishes being caught.
The survey also aimed to find out whether the fishing public was familiar with, and generally supportive of, the new fishing regulations brought in at the end of 2010.
Opinions on licensing and reporting options were also sought. The report discusses the information on reported catches, and compares the fishing activity of the two groups surveyed.
