The Angling Trust have opened applications for the second round of their Angling Improvement Fund (AIF), inviting clubs and fisheries in England to apply for funding to support action to tackle invasive non-native species.

Following the success of the funding round last year, today the Angling Trust are opening applications for projects focused on biosecurity and invasive species management.

The fund will be available to support fisheries and clubs that wish to:

  • install washdown stations or dip tanks to stop invasive species being introduced
  • purchase equipment to tackle invasive species
  • send members on invasive species training such as safe application of herbicides
  • undertake ecological surveys of plants and aquatic invertebrates to establish what species they have on site.
