    Goals / Remit

    EAA's values are 'green' and rooted in the 'sustainable use of resources' tradition as understood from an angling perspective. The EAA is committed to the concepts of sustainable development and ecosystem based management, and to protect biodiversity in all its forms, genetic diversity, species diversity -incl. a healthy age-distribution within fish stocks and ecosystem diversity.

    Cutting from the EAA Statutes:

    1. The overall goal of EAA is to work on European level and in the framework of international projects, for the interests of recreational angling, by active involvement in all areas vital for the present status and the future development of fish stocks, aquatic environment and angling activities.

    2. to promote and administer a national and international alliance to improve the aquatic environment as it affects, or may affect, the well being of fisheries and angling within EU Member States and other European states
