Submissions Sought On IFI’s Novice Angling Strategy

Submissions Sought On IFI’s Novice Angling Strategy

Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) is inviting submissions for its new Novice Angling Strategy, titled ‘Let’s Fish’, which is aimed at growing participation in the sport and pastime.

Based on a series of consultations last year with anglers, angling clubs and representative groups, as well as non-anglers, the draft strategy is currently under going environmental assessments.

In the meantime, the State agency responsible for Ireland’s inland fisheries is seeking input from its stakeholders regarding the main barriers to increasing angling participation, and how its vision — “All fishing together” — can be achieved between now and 2025.

“The social and economic value of angling in Ireland is significant; over 270,000 people identify themselves as anglers,” says IFI’s Suzanne Campion.

“The Let’s Fish strategy will work to connect people to angling and the environment and make it accessible to everyone.”

All members of the public are also invited to share their input into the Novice Angling Strategy on the IFI website HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
