Position Statements

What is the Angling Trust’s policy on predation? On pollution? Invasive species? Access to waters? How is the Angling Trust supporting sea anglers and protecting marine environments?

We have produced a series of Position Statements outlining what we are doing on these and other important matters to protect fish, fishing and the environment. You can download them below.

If you are not a member of the Angling Trust, please consider joining and supporting our work. You can find out more details here.
