The CatchApp: what do fishermen really think?


Calling all Under10m fishermen.

CatchApp on your mobile device.

The Coastal PO has ONLY received complaints and been contacted by people having real trouble using the MMO's new CatchApp, either from their phones or when trying to report their catches in other ways. 

Despite this we hear that the MMO is telling people (and presumably Defra) that it's all going great, fishermen love it, "you only hear about the moaners", "I was in Rye the other day and all the fishermen there gave it a big thumbs up" and so on.

Are we really only getting one side of the story?

What's the real view of fishermen? Tell us please?

Please take a few minutes to complete this important survey on using the CatchApp.
