A FRESH pot of £75,000 of rod licence money has been set aside to help fisheries improve their facilities and tackle invasive species.

With ‘non-natives’ such as Himalayan Balsam and Signal Crayfish proving a major  headache on many waters, clubs are being invited to apply for a £5,000 chunk of this year’s Angling Improvement Fund (AIF).

“Invasive species present a major threat to fish and fishing” said the Angling Trust’s Emily Smith. “This is a fantastic opportunity for anglers to get support to tackle the issue.”

Clubs can can also use the funds to boost facilities such as fishing platforms, and to increase predator defences.
