Help create a sustainable fishing tackle sector for today and future generations

__

Create environmental and social value, not just economic value in angling products and services

Get proactively involved and help shape the future industry you want to see

The Eden Sustainability Declaration is a voluntary commitment for the global tackle trades. Industry collaboration presents opportunities to contribute to economic solutions, whilst helping to solve today’s sustainability challenges. In today’s conservation and ethics conscious world, this can contribute to the sector’s sustainability credentials, enhance angling’s relevance to young people and build brand following. The Declaration is written to be of relevant in all countries.

Addressing single-use plastic packaging, as part of a solution to the pressing global ‘plastics in ocean’ problem, represents an important early opportunity for tackle trade collaboration.

Manufacturers as well as retailers (and supporting third parties) are encouraged to become signatories and pledge to embrace the Declaration’s guiding principles. Partners include the UK Angling Trades Association and Environment Agency (England). fish21 provides the secretariat for the Declaration.
