Attention Anglers: Sea Angling Diary

The Sea Angling Diary Project is for English and Welsh sea anglers to help improve the sustainable management of marine stocks and demonstrate the value of sea angling.

The project has helped to report the activity, catches and economic and social value of recreational sea angling since 2016 which is used to inform better decision making about sea angling’s future.

Diarists record their sea angling sessions and catches each month via an online website tool or a mobile app. Over 2,000 sea anglers take part every year – join them now and discover some great benefits!

  • A free catch recording kit with waterproof notebook, sea fish identification guide and tape measure.
  • A free mobile app to record all your fishing sessions (location, tackle, weather and tide) and all your catches (including length and numbers kept and returned). All new users in 2022 get a free waterproof phone holder when they use the app. Perfect for entering data as you fish.
  • Entry into monthly prize draws for £50 and £25 Fishing Megastore vouchers and an RNLI goody bag.
