The Strategy that the Broads Angling Services Group will pursue was first launched on 20th May 2018 at the Forum in Norwich. It has been updated during 2022, but at its AGM in Jan 2023 it was rejected and replaced with a new set of aims and ambitions. These have been since turned into top level objectives by its members.
The Broads Angling Strategy – A framework to represent fisheries and angling in the Broads
The Broads area forms Britain’s largest and finest wetland and is one of the region’s premier tourist attractions. Angling and fisheries play a key role in supporting the rural economy in the Broads, accounting for at least 16 percent of the 7.2 million visitors to the area and contributing in excess of £100 million to the local economy each year.
Given the local, regional and national importance of the Broads for angling and the complexity of the issues that can affect the area, anglers have always had a strong interest in the way the Broads is managed.
