Fisheries and angling action plans

Our waterway Fisheries and Angling Action Plans were developed during 2015 following a nationwide series of stakeholder meetings. These included numerous angling clubs, the Rivers Trust, the Angling Trust and the Environment Agency. The plans identified the key fisheries and angling issues that need to be addressed:

  1. Retaining existing angling customers and attracting new ones
  2. Developing and improving access to the fishery
  3. Opportunities to engage with local communities
  4. Taking advantage of the opportunities for volunteering and adoptions
  5. Improving communication between us and our customers
  6. Funding
  7. Fish passage and migration
  8. Predation and non-native species
  9. Fish stocks and fisheries management
  10. Fisheries and water quality and quantity

These action plans act as our long-term manifestos for our work in each area. Please email us if you would like to see your local action plan.
