A reminder for all you ‘taggers’,
Tagathon 2010 is part of the Scottish Sea Angling Conservation Network’s (SSACN – www.ssacn.org) ongoing campaign to allow the stocks of spurdog and common skate in Lochs Sunart and Etive and surrounding waters to regenerate by protecting their habitats which are thought to be important breeding and pupping grounds.
The event will take place on the weekend 13/14th November and will be based around two main participation centres on Loch Etive and Loch Sunart. Both of the centres will be manned by SSACN volunteers on a daily basis.
As with all SSACN tagging events. Tagathon is a fun event with an equal emphasis put on demonstrating to the local residents the real value of angling tourism to their community, as inshore fish populations could be completely sustainable and of far more value when used to support locally based sport fishing centres.
By doing this it is our sincere belief that “people power” will help us win the argument for greater conservation of inshore fish stocks for the benefit off the majority.
To make this event a success we once again need your help.
Please consider coming along with your mates, boat, kayak and/or your beach casters to help us with this important conservation work.
Thanks and regards
The Tagathon Team
