Fishery Crime

Rise of fishery crime seen by Fishery Watch, in 2020 compared to 2019

Fishery Watch Membership

Rise in Membership for 2019 to 2020

Angling cannot rely on the Environment Agency (EA) or the Angling Trust (AT) to look after the future of angling. The EA are understaffed on the ground & the AT are heavily funded by the EA, you do not upset the people that pay your wages after all.  ANGLERS NOW need to come together & take on the responsibility of caring for our rivers/streams & waterways, we cannot rely on anybody else to do it, there are more of us anglers that can really make the difference that is needed for angling to thrive again.  Fishery Watch has taken up the fight to protect our fisheries from Fish Theft & Predation, along with we also need to fight for our Rivers/Streams & Waterways that are in a terrible state and need us NOW. We also have to protect the Environment, especially surrounding our fisheries.  

Fishery Watch can handle this battle with your support, due to our 100% independence, we are in a position to fight for Angling unlike any other organisation in the United Kingdom, we are not funded by any government department.

Please consider Joining Fishery Watch, we are the way forward for angling, we MUST STOP what is going on, angling cannot last out the way things are. We all need to come together as one, the current system in place is failing angling in a big way, unrecoverable damaged maybe being done already, angling as we know it may not survive for future generations. We paid in excess of £22M+ in the last 12 months in Rod License fees, that is shared between the Environment Agency & The Angling Trust and they have both failed us. We need to make things change, and it needs to change NOW!.
