Angling benefits our environment in many ways. The Environment Agency has the responsibility of maintaining, improving and developing fisheries now and for the future.

We want to improve fish stocks and provide a better environment for wildlife and people. We want to make it possible for more people of all abilities to enjoy angling and for fisheries in Anglian Region to provide a positive contribution to the quality of people’s lives.

Healthy fish populations in our rivers and still waters are a good indication that we are looking after our water environment. Angling provides a valuable opportunity for economic growth particularly in rural areas. It is an activity that can be enjoyed by everyone and has the potential to provide positive social, health and  educational benefits. It can build self-esteem and confidence and is increasingly being used to address social inclusion and to tackle antisocial behaviour.

A great deal has been achieved over the last 20 years, as water quality has improved. Pressures on our fisheries the wider environment still remain with unprecedented demands for water, increasing development, intensive agriculture and the impact of climate change. In the face of such change, it is crucial that the importance and value of our fisheries are recognised.

We are committed to ensuring that we maximise the benefits from the implementation of the Water Framework Directive. The Environment Agency is here to meet these challenges and through working together, our fisheries can be protected and improved now and for the future.

Fish Refuge at Costessey and works at Sculthorpe

When a landowner asked us to take a look at a local area of eroding bank on the River Wensum at Costessey, the easiest solution would have been to fill it in. However, during a site visit we realised the erosion had created a valuable fry bay, a feature which is uncommon along this otherwise uniform stretch of river.

At Sculthorpe we have learnt from past experiences by moving away from a prescriptive design solution. Instead we have relied on the skills and experience of our North Norfolk Field Operations Team, to determine the finer detail based on how the river reacts to restoration features as they are being constructed.
