The introduction of a new technology that will dramatically cut the transfer of fish disease is the result of leading lights from British industry pulling together. BSafe – short for 'bacteria safe' – began life in the mind of avid angler Derek Willan, who believes that all anglers should be doing their bit to safeguard fish health in the UK. Derek explained: "Virus outbreaks were getting all the press, but research revealed that the bigger killers were a relatively small group of bacteria which the Environment Agency confirmed were present in the majority of fish mortalities they attended in 2013. 

“It has been proven under laboratory conditions that disease can be transferred on nets to fish, and I feel, as anglers, we have a duty of care to look into any avenue that can help ensure healthier fish stocks.
