EFSA European Species Championship (cod & coalfish), Olafsvik, ICELAND, 26 to 28 May 2022

Due to travel restrictions in Europe because of the Covid-19 crises The Organizing Committee and the Board of EFSA Iceland decided to cancel the European Species Championship to be held in Olafsvik Iceland May 20th-22nd 2021.

Many EFSA Sections announced that their members will not be able to travel in May due to the crises and therefore very few anglers outside of Iceland can attend the Championship. EFSA Iceland will send to EFSA HQ an application to held the European Species Championship next year (2022) in May in Olafsvik targeting Cod and Coalfish.
