Valuable prizes for anglers collecting sea trout scale samples to CSTP in 2012

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 ( Several key aspects of the project require scales samples from rod‐caught fish within the Irish and Celtic Sea regions, especially from the priority river systems and fish caught at sea.

As an incentive to anglers to participate in scale collection in 2012, the CSTP project partners are offering three €100 tackle voucher prizes to be awarded to 3 anglers drawn at random from filled scale envelopes submitted to the project from anglers fishing within the project area (Irish and south Celtic Seas) in 2012.
