Where the Flounder Go

Feb 09,2007 SACN

Once a popular fish with anglers, particularly youngsters and new-comers (and not so new-comers as well!) and a mainstay of many angling competitions, the once abundant flounder, especially in the estuaries, could be a fish to be relied upon for some sport, and sometimes for the pot as well.

But in recent years anglers have been left scratching their heads at their virtual disappearance from so many venues with many theories being put forward for their apparent demise from the Recreational Sea Fisheries.

An small item in this week's Fishing News could hold a key to at least part of the story.

The article tells of a Conwy Under 10metre being sold to work in the Dee estuary.

Apparently the new owner 'intends targeting flounder to supply the increasingly attractive bait trade'
