We want to secure and conserve our fisheries and make sure they are suitable and well used by the many people who want to fish them.
We benefit greatly from the support of an expert Angling and Fisheries Advisory Group, which comprises a small number of skilled and experienced practitioners.
The group helps us chart a course through angling and fisheries management issues, especially those that may be innovative or controversial, to ensure fisheries and angling is appropriate, well managed, and reflects our charitable objectives.
The group’s chair is Professor Emeritus Ian Trayer. A lifelong angler, Ian is a retired professor of biochemistry with expertise in water chemistry.
