Angling Improvement Fund
The Angling Improvement Fund (AIF) is a way of reinvesting income from fishing licence sales in projects which benefit anglers across England.
Since its launch in 2015, the AIF has made over 600 separate awards totalling over £2.4m to clubs and fisheries that aimed to improve the infrastructure of angling facilities all of which support the National Angling Strategy. Recent Projects included ways to help tackle the predation of fish stocks, improve biosecurity, encourage more people to go fishing and provided bursaries for over 200 new coaching licences.
The fund is opening for applications from 0900 on May 16th 2022, for clubs and fisheries that are planning Biosecurity projects to tackle and prevent the spread of Invasive Non Native Species (INNS) on their waters.

The fund will close for applications on 4th July at 17:00.
