Make your views known on the angling issues that matter in our online survey of Angling Trust and Fish Legal members and non-members at www.anglingtrust.net/membershipsurvey
Mark Lloyd, Chief Executive of the Angling Trust & Fish Legal said: "This angling survey is an important opportunity for anglers to give us their views not only about the work of their representative body but also on any issues that they feel are important to the future of angling. This might include worries about declining fish stocks, threats to anglers' rights and the lack of young people coming into our sport. We will publish the results of the survey in November and will use it to prioritise our campaigns, and Fish Legal's legal work, over the coming year. I urge everyone who cares about the future of fishing to get involved and have their say"
The Angling Trust runs campaigns, and Fish Legal takes legal action, to fight numerous threats to fish stocks such as poaching, predation, pollution, habitat damage and over-abstraction. The unified organisation also promotes the benefits of angling to society and protects anglers' rights to go fishing. The Trust also has a wide range of programmes to get more people fishing more often and manages a growing calendar of national and international competitions. The survey is intended to identify the top priorities for the angling community to back up our campaigns and legal action.
