100% of fishing licence income is reinvested back into angling. Between 1 April 2022 and 31 March 2023 the Environment Agency sold 903,216 licences, which generated nearly £21,000,000 of fishing licence income. This was reinvested to improve fisheries for people, the environment and angling.

38,464 people (of which 24,123 were juniors) were able to try fishing for the first time at 2,611 events run by funded Partners including Get Hooked on Fishing.

Rod fishing licence holders are fundamental to the future of angling and this Annual Report shows how the support of everyone who buys a fishing licence enables the Environment Agency to do so much for the sport you love! Whether you are new to the sport or it has been a life-long hobby, everything achieved this year was only possible thanks to you.
