Fifth and sixth class students in Dublin and nationwide are being asked to design a poster that encourages greater conservation of Ireland’s native fish, writes Rachel Cunningham.

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, with the aim of conserving more fish in rivers, lakes and around coastlines and boosting biodiversity. The winning students will also receive a tablet to the value of €500.

The national poster competition is part of the ‘Something Fishy’ educational programme that officially launches this month.

Launching the competition, Suzanne Campion, Head of Business Development with Inland Fisheries Ireland said:“Our children are the future and promoting the simple act of releasing the fish that you catch, shows the power of an individual in conserving our environment”.

To enter the 2022 competition, parents, guardians or teachers are asked to email original entries to [email protected] before Friday, April 15.
