Conservation and the environment

alternative text.

The Association and its members have always shared a deep respect for the local environment. It is in the interest of all to keep our surroundings tidy, free from danger and pollution. We understand that from an ecological viewpoint that if there is a weak link in the chain, the whole chain will suffer and possibly collapse as a consequence. We therefore go out of our way to ensure that every aspect of the flora and fauna around us, (not just the fish in our waters), gets the care and devotion it needs and deserves. We take advice from many areas of expertise, to enable us to develop our policies and safeguard the long term interests of the environment in which we live. We are aware that there is always more to learn, but are always willing to embrace new ways in which we can evolve and improve and we welcome any suggestions you may have.
