A letter of thanks from our founders: Stu Harris, Matt Tanner and Fennel Hudson
Thank you for expressing interest in wild carp. The purpose of the Wild Carp Trust is to celebrate the wild carp, champion and fight for its protection, educate others about its importance and, most importantly, to conserve the few remaining strains we have left.
It’s amazing to think that seven years have passed since we had the idea to create a ‘Wild Carp Trust’. You might ask why it’s taken seven years to mobilise something so important. Well, in truth, it hasn’t.
Matt has already done a great deal of work exploring the foundations and of a Trust, setting up the Wild Carp Trust Facebook group, leading fishing trips to Welsh wild carp waters, ensuring those who control the fishing understand the importance and value of their fish stocks, and, most recently, he has been maintaining a physical presence on wild carp waters threatened by otter predation.
