Fish theft is an even worse problem than previously feared, a survey by the National Association of Fisheries and Angling Consultatives (NAFAC) has revealed.
It's now appealing to anglers and angling clubs to send in information to help its survey, to provide more ammunition with which it can lobby the aothorities.
NAFAC National Council member Steve Hellen said: ‘The information we received initially has confirmed how serious a problem fish theft is, and how little is being done by the authorities to tackle it.
"We hope others, not previously involved, will take advantage of this opportunity to comment."
