Buckfastleigh, Devon 25th Feb

A meeting has been arranged with Defra on Monday 25th February 2008.

We would like Sea Anglers from the South West to meet Defra to talk and discuss the recent released Consultation on a Recreational Sea Angling (RSA) Strategy for England Document. 

This is a very important document which can be looked up at Defra website www.defra.gov.uk and all RSA should send in their responses by 31 st March 2008.
The purpose of this meeting would be to help anglers prepare their responses and or to ask any questions they might have to Defra.
Please can I ask, that if you are or know of any interested parties who would like to attend this meeting,  to contact David Rowe at the NFSA Head Office on 01364 644643 or E Mail dr@nfsa.org.uk  

We would like to get some feel for numbers for this date, so please let us know as soon as possible.
