  • Create a balanced fishery
  • Realise the importance of aquatic weed management
  • Understand techniques available for controlling difficult plants

This workshop has been developed by the Environment Agency and the Institute of Fisheries Management (IFM). We are able to offer your club, or fishery up to 4 places completely free of charge. Further places may be available on request.

Tea and coffee will be available on arrival and during the day however, attendees will need to supply their own lunch. There are cafes and food stalls around the park which will be open for attendees..
We ask you to consider carefully your nominations for this workshop. The cost to develop, and run it comes from income received from anglers buying a fishing licence, therefore it is in all our interests to ensure this money is not wasted. We also want you to get the best possible outcome for your fishery so would suggest the people attending are committed to the club, or fishery, and its future success.
