Local sea anglers satisfied with government response on temporary permits

The Gibraltar Federation of Sea Anglers says it’s satisfied that the Government has rejected as pure speculation the suggestion that a detailed agreement has been reached with Spanish fishermen on the question of temporary boat licences.

The Federation says it has worked closely with this Government on matters concerning the protection of Gibraltar’s Marine Environment and will continue to do so. However it adds that it will not be taken for granted.

The Federation says it recognises the huge gains that have been made since the Alliance formed the Government and wishes to make clear its desire to work in partnership to protect the marine environment.
