British Record (rod caught) Fish Committee
British Record Fish Committee Aims and Objectives
The Committee exists to recognise and publish record weights of both fresh and salt water fish caught on rod and line by fair angling methods in the waters of England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Channel Islands, and aims:
- To provide an adjudicating body to which marine and freshwater anglers may submit claims for record fish taken by fair rod and line angling.
- To investigate all such record claims to the fullest possible extent and maintain a permanent record of such investigations.
- To establish and maintain accurately a list of British fish, marine and freshwater, of record size and to publish this list frequently and make it readily available to all interested persons.
The activities of the Committee are voluntary, and claims are considered and adjudicated upon, only on the basis that the Committee shall be under no obligation whatsoever to claimants, that its decisions shall be final, and it shall not be obliged to give reasons for its decisions.
