National Angling Participation Questionnaire Needs Your Help!

All anglers urged to get involved

A major, new research programme focusing on the social benefits of angling in the England and Scotland is underway. The project, ‘The Social and Community Benefits of Angling’ is funded by the Big Lottery Fund and runs from January 2009 - January 2012.

The research is investigating the positive roles angling can play for (i) those who participate in it; (ii) young people; and (iii) communities where angling takes place.

Substance, a not-for-profit social research company, is managing the research programme. The research will work closely with angling bodies, policymakers and community groups, including the Angling Trust, the Environment Agency and a range of other angling organisations in the UK.

A questionnaire survey on angling participation kicked off in July 2009. We are strongly encouraging ALL anglers – whether they are coarse, game or sea anglers; match, pleasure or specimen anglers – to take part. By clicking here you can access the internet version of the questionnaire; alternatively, you can visit the project website at www.anglingresearch.org.uk and follow the designated link to the questionnaire.

National Angling Questionnaire


By completing the questionnaire you will be providing vital information for the research, which will inform both angling stakeholders and policymakers.
All information collected by the questionnaire will be anonymised and no individual personal data will be disclosed.
