Super spring bass in Kerry
March 16th, 2017 | by Myles Kelly
Sea Bass Hunter Tomasz Eckert had his first bass of 2017 on last month and it’s taken some time to get amongst these lightening fresh fish again. But he managed that feat this week with a super bass on Monday followed by three more on Tuesday.
All the bass were tagged and released as part of the National Bass Tagging Programme.

National Bass Programme
IFI has established a National Bass Programme to collect data on bass in order to provide scientific advice to support management and conservation of Ireland’s bass resource. Bass is Ireland’s only marine fish species which is managed for angling. The programme is being developed to determine the status of bass stocks and also to improve understanding of their ecology and biology in Ireland for the long-term sustainability of the species.
