FISHING clubs have warned their members to keep popular areas clean after sacks containing dead fish and a sea bird were dumped at Pembroke Bay.

FISHING clubs have warned their members to keep popular areas clean after sacks containing dead fish and a sea bird were dumped at Pembroke Bay.

The clubs have joined together to produce a poster campaign reminding shore fishermen of their responsibilities, with club officials branding the mess unacceptable.

A member of the public contacted the Environment Department to report that someone had left more than two sacks of rubbish, which included tackle, a barbecue, dead fish and a sea bird in early July.

West Coast Sea Angling Club president Shane Huxster said Environment passed on the complaint.

'Some of our club members acted immediately and cleared the site that evening and we realised we had to get the message across that this kind of behaviour is unacceptable and gives a poor impression of shore fishing,' he said.
