Ask Sport England not to support angling


Sport England has announced its largest ever investment in the ‘sport’ of angling. It will be giving £1.8m to the Angling Trust over the next four years to increase the number of people who fish recreationally and to encourage occasional anglers to fish regularly. Sport England is also looking to establish a national competition structure for angling in the UK.

Angling is a cruel activity that causes pain, suffering and death to countless fish who are pierced with hooks and dragged into the air to suffocate. It is also harmful to other wildlife who become tangled in broken or discarded fishing line and swallow hooks.

      The angling organisation not only want to hunt fish and harm them. They also want to kill any animal or bird that eats fish. Otters, cormorants and goosanders are all targets.
