It is a partnership-led strategy that was developed by consultation with the angling community key partners, angling charities and other interested organisations and using feedback from the National Angling Survey in which over 35,000 people took part.

The aims of the National Angling Strategy are to:

1. Increase participation in angling

2. Connect more people to nature through angling for their well-being and to improve the environment.
