We've got science on our side, claim

Organisers of the controversial Erne International pike fishing match claim "a respected fisheries scientist" told them barrels without any aeration were the best way of retaining pike prior to the weigh-in at the event.

Today's Fermanagh Impartial Reporter newspaper states: "The barrel system was adopted after consultation with a respected fisheries scientist."

The Pike Anglers Club is using Freedom Of Information laws to find out a little more about this scientist and the advice supposedly given, as to date match organisers have not provided any more information.
