Last week, Jan wrote to EU Environment Minister Stavros Dimas, again urging for EU action. In 2002, a colony of Snakehead fish caused chaos in Maryland, USA. Officials were forced to use poison to eradicate the fish because scientists feared that the snakeheads, which can wriggle short distances on land, could spread and devastate the Maryland ecosystem. Snakeheads can reach 3 feet in length and devour smaller fish, frogs, birds and even small mammals. Snakeheads are illegal in the UK, but angler Andy Alder claimed he caught one while using a sprat as bait for pike on the River Witham near North Hykeham, Lincolnshire. Experts who studied photos of Andy’s catch confirmed it was the predator which is on a list of species that cannot be imported into the UK. It is feared the fish had been smuggled in for an aquarium and then illegally released - although some experts believe the story may now have been a hoax.

ISE, which has more than 30 years experience producing America’s premier fishing shows, will encourage boaters and anglers at their Phoenix Expo (March 7-9) and Salt Lake City Expo (March 13-16) to “Take the Pledge” and introduce at least one newcomer to the sport of fishing. ISE staff will also promote the program on their Web site and run video public service announcements (PSAs) during the events, strengthening their commitment to the Anglers’ Legacy message and protecting the legacy of the sport. “Through hands-on activities, giant Youth Outdoor Fairs, and industry personalities, ISE encourages people to become more active and learn how to get the most of their outdoor adventure,” said ISE Director of Communications John Kirk. “We want Anglers’ Legacy to be part of that message. We want to remind anglers that they can help grow the sport for future generations by introducing a friend or family member to fishing this year.” “We’re delighted that ISE will carry our Anglers’ Legacy message this month and help us reach avid boaters and anglers who will share their love of the sport,” said RBFF President and CEO Frank Peterson. “With more than 27,000 Ambassadors signed on nationwide, the Anglers’ Legacy program may have already generated $3.3 million in fishing tackle and equipment sales, and $4.5 million in boating supplies and accessories. We look forward to expanding our Anglers’ Legacy message during these events.”
