Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) is preparing a National Angling Development Plan (NADP).  It is envisaged that the NADP will provide criteria, support and proposals to ensure the sustainability of Ireland’s angling resource and the continuing sustainable development of that resource to maximise the benefits (social and economic) to Ireland on a prioritised basis.

Anglers, angling clubs, angling federations, fishery owners, community groups, angling service providers, state agencies and members of the public are hereby invited to make submissions which may include: strategies for the development of angling, physical development projects, novice angler initiatives, evaluation criteria of fisheries status by species/discipline type (i.e. what makes a good fishery) and angling/fishery support service requirements; submissions can be formulated on a national, regional or local basis as necessary.


Submissions must be made in writing, marked ‘NADP – public consultation’.

The deadline for receipt of submissions is 3pm on Tuesday March 31st, 2015.
