    Fishing trip with children of the CEMEA 

    This Saturday, June 20 will remain in the memories of the children invited by the Carnon Fishing Club to a sea fishing trip.

    With the benefit of a nice weather 14 children boarded 7 boats made available by the members of Carnon Fishing club. Objective: To share the sea and the pleasures of fishing boat.

    In return, the comments are scrambling all  more enthusiastic than others and compiled on a large sheet over lunch prepared by parents and members of the CEMEA team. "Great Day," "I had always dreamed of riding one of these boats," "Thank you for this wonderful day" "We are neighbors in Carnon, and the idea to get to know and share our values, appeared as all natural to us, says Jean Luc Naudet, president of Carnon Fishing Club. Our federation, the FNPPSF, advocates education and initiation to the world of the sea to the new generations. This approach came to us naturally. I thank the CEMEA Carnon for his welcome, preparing a convivial meal and the boat captains and guides for being available for that day, full of mutual learning.

    Shooting of a vidéo on how to use floating anchors

    The morning of May 27, 2015 , the President of Carnon Fishing Club , assisted by two board members , received a delegation of Marine Protected Areas and Natura 2000 , to make an educational video on the use of sea anchors . Two boats provided by the club members have helped run a demonstration of this technique used to limit the drifting of a boat . It's very interesting for fishing needing to limit the movement of the boat, because the experience of that day proved that we could reduce this drift nearly down to a mile with an anchor, and almost double using two anchors simultaneously. Of course it is not suitable for fishing where the boat must remain static , such as sea bream , but it opens interesting perspectives in all other cases. This video will be available on our website immediately after publication by Natura 2000 .
