Representatives from Pure Fishing, Svendsen Sport and Normark – with assistance from EFTTA – have secured a two-year exemption from legislation introduced by the Danish Environmental Protection Agency which bans lead in fishing tackle. EFTTA contributed almost €15,000 in legal fees to ensure that until March 2018 at least fishing rods with a lead content of 0.05% and reels with lead content up to 5% can be sold in Denmark.
