Anglers Prize Draw

Celtic Sea Trout Project

Angler Prize Draw 2011

The Celtic Sea Trout Project (CSTP) is a European Union, Interreg IV

·] funded, Ireland ·] Wales collaborative project looking into the status, distribution, genetics and ecology of sea trout around the Irish Sea ( http://www.celticseatrout.com/about/programme.htm ). Several key aspects of the project require scales samples from rod ·] caught fish within the Irish Sea region, especially from 25 priority river systems .

 

The Prizes

As an incentive to anglers to participate in the project, the CSTP project partners are offering several valuable tackle voucher prize s, including:

A £500 (€582) tackle voucher prize to the angler submitting the most scales from our priority rivers in 2011.

Three £350 (€407) tackle voucher prizes to each of the three 3 anglers who returned the most scales from priority systems in 2011 within each of other three regions: Ireland (inc NI), Scotland and IoM, Wales, or NW England

Ten £100 (€116) tackle vouchers to be awarded to 10 anglers to be drawn at random from the remaining scale samples submitted. (this includes samples submitted in 2010 and those from non

·] priority rivers within the project area)

There are no age restrictions, any angler can submit their scales

Scales must be angler caught sea trout. Other species or fish caught by any other methods will not be eligible.

Evidence of cheating (e.g. submitting scales from the same fish more than once, or submitting scales caught by another anglers under your own name) will result in al of that angler’s samples being deemed invalid.

Sample envelopes must be fully completed and clearly legible and the angler’s name and contact details must be clearly marked on the packet. The project partners will not be held responsible for scales that are damaged/illegible on arrival.

Scale samples submitted after the 31/3/12 deadline will not be eligible for any prizes.

Scales samples already submitted before 31/3/11 (i.e. for the 2010 season) will be included in the prize draw, but only fish caught in 2011 season will count toward the main and runner up prizes.

All scales must come from fish caught in freshwater, upstream of the tidal limit, in rivers that are within the project area, see

http://www.celticseatrout.com/about/location.htm . Only samples from priority rivers will count towards the top 4 prizes.

 

In the event that 2 or more anglers catch the same number of fish the top or runners up prizes will be shared between the qualifying anglers.

There is no limit to the number of scales samples submitted.

No single angler will be able to win more than one prize.

Any complaints should be submitted in writing to The project lead, Celtic Sea Trout Project, School of Ocean Sciences, Bangor University, Menai Bridge LL59 5AB.
