Angling Trust at Diglis Basin

Angling Trust at Diglis Basin

On Thursday 8th March, Julie and Joe met with Kevin Pearson, Regional Enforcement Manager (Midlands) for the Angling Trust, to discuss several reports of illegal fishing in and around Diglis Basin. Kevin informed us of ‘Operation Leviathan’.

‘Operation Leviathan’ is the name of the partnership agreement between the Angling Trust, Environment agency, police and angling clubs to tackle fish theft and illegal angling on all rivers, lakes and canals in England and Wales. We want to make our waterways safe and to encourage anglers to enjoy their sport responsibly and support the work of Canal & River Trust to help make this happen.

The Angling Trust ask that all waterways users report any suspected illegal fishing or removal of fish to the EA incident hotline 0800 807060.
