The Sea Angling Diary Project has been running since 2016. It aims to estimate the impacts and value of recreational sea angling in the UK. Currently, Scottish anglers are underrepresented in the study and, Substance, the company running the survey, are trying to recruit more to take part.

If you Sea fish in Scotland we would encourage you to participate and also to encourage other Sea Anglers to do the same.
