Closed – Sea Angling 2012 Survey

Sea Angling 2012is a government-sponsored project being carried out by Cefas (Centre for Environment, Fisheries and Aquaculture Science), the Marine Management Organisation (MMO) and the inshore fisheries and conservation authorities (IFCAs).

It aims to collect information and data on recreational sea angling to improve scientific understanding of fish stocks off the coast and to ensure that the needs of sea angling are represented as effectively as possible in future marine policy development. The sea angling community will benefit by having information to help them develop their own views and policies.

The project will look at how to provide the most cost-effective information on:

  • the number of people who go sea angling during the year
  • how often they fish from the shore or from boats in different parts of England
  • numbers and sizes of fish caught or released to the sea
  • the social and economic importance of sea angling in England

For more information see the project page on the MMO website.
