Fish Newquay encourages guests to take care of their environment. The coast is one of our most precious natural resources. Fish Newquay offers guidance on how to get involved in preserving it.
Anglers must think about the effect they have on the sea when they are out on the water. Compared to other industries, angling boats causes minimal disturbance to the sea. But this is not a license for complacency. The sea is a beautiful place, but we need to take care when we are there to make sure wildlife does not suffer from our presence. For example, nesting and pupping seasons of many species of animals in the sea coincide with the high season for angling boats.
Experiencing the natural world at sea is a privilege. It is important to remember, however, that boats are excellent platforms for observing wildlife. In our excitement to see wild animals, we may inadvertently disturb them without realizing it. To limit our impact on wildlife, it’s important to become more educated so we can be better prepared.
