We would like to remind all fishing friends, amateurs and professionals, as well as to the bodies and audit authorities directly involved, that according to Vas. Decree no. No.. 142 of 1971, article 1, paragraph 5, Crayfish fishing is prohibited in all lakes and rivers of Greece, from 15 February to 15 May of each year, for breeding purposes.
We should all help together, for the sustainability of all aquatic organisms and to respect the ban, as well as the forthcoming fishing ban to be issued, for the reproduction of fish.
We also ask the competent local authorities to act for the timely information and compliance of all those directly concerned..
Finally, we ask the police departments of Kozani and Serbia, which are responsible for the control and observance of the Law., to intensify controls on Lake Polyphytou, not only during the current fishing bans but throughout the year.
As an Association we are at the disposal of the local authorities to assist in any help needed.
Yours sincerely, the Board.
