‘Something Fishy’ poster competition 08.03.22

PRIMARY school students in Inishowen are being asked to design a poster that encourages conservation of Ireland’s native fish. The competition, organised by Inland Fisheries Ireland in conjunction with Blackrock Education Centre, is part of the ‘Something Fishy’ educational programme and officially kicks off this month.

Open to fifth and sixth class pupils, the winning posters will be used as part of an awareness campaign to promote the ‘catch, photo and release’ (CPR) method of angling in Ireland. Under the ‘CPR’ approach, a fish that is caught with a rod by an angler is quickly photographed and then returned safely back into the same water to swim away. As a result, greater numbers of fish can be conserved in rivers, lakes and around coastlines, putting less pressure on fish populations and boosting biodiversity.
Further details about the competition are available from www.somethingfishy.ie
To enter, primary school students are being asked to create a poster with the ‘catch, photo and release’ message and take a photograph of it. Parents, guardians or teachers are asked to email original entries to outreach@fisheriesireland.ie before Friday, April 15th.

The winning students in fifth and sixth class categories will receive a tablet to the value of €500 and will have their work featured in an awareness campaign. Only one entry is allowed per student and all winners will be announced in early June. Free resources with further details about the competition are available from www.somethingfishy.ie .
