RADIO – Final Package

A 2’30” package about the conflict between otters and anglers, and the European law that protects them!

CUE: Some anglers are angry that more otters are appearing in British waters.

The marine animals were nearly wiped out from their range across Europe fifty years ago. As a result of this an EU directive was brought in to protect them.

The European Otter was listed as a Near Threatened species back in 2001 by the IUCN Red List, and their re-emergence in the wild is celebrated by conservationists.

Emma Fry went to the Institute of Fisheries Management conference in Somerset to find out more.
