Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) has recognised the key role angling clubs play in the area of fisheries development and angling tourism. It has identified the empowerment of its stakeholders as a key objective and has designed its programmes to ensure that stakeholders are facilitated and partnered to assist in the strategic development of fisheries and angling developments.
Following on the success of last year’s Midland Fisheries Fund, IFI have decided to continue the scheme through which angling clubs and organisations can access funding to undertake sustainable development works in the Midland Fisheries Group permit area. The fund has been created through angler contributions set-a-side from the Permit Income received by IFI in the Midlands Fisheries Group permit area.
The Scheme is called the Midland Fisheries Sustainable Development Fund (MFF)
