Gilbert Zangerlé President of FIPS-M
Dear Sea Anglers, dear friends,
At our General Assembly in Almaty on May 3rd, 2019, I had the honor of being elected as President of the International Federation of Sport Sea Fishing.
I would sincerely like to thank all the federations for the trust they have shown me.
As President, I will certainly emphasize good cooperation between the FIPS-M board and the member federations while maintaining international independence - this in order to defend the best interests of sport sea angling.
It is certain that in the future FIPS-M and CIPS will have to face two major challenges, namely the protection of the water and the environment and the promotion of young people into the sport of sea angling.
To be successful in these tasks, we will have to work together as a team to achieve these aims.
As President of FIPS-M and on my own behalf, I intend firmly to gather all the sea anglers, federations as individuals, officials as volunteers to accomplish these challenges.
In the hope of a good constructive collaboration, I ask you to accept my best regards.
