Angling Promotion

The Angling Promotion Officer (APO) acts as a focal point for angling tourism in the Outer Hebrides. The APO has represented the Outer Hebrides in supporting Visit Scotland and Fish Pal at both the Scottish and CLA Game Fairs. The APO is also the franchise manager for the Fish Hebrides website. Virtually all fisheries in the Outer Hebrides are now included on Fish Hebrides. The site includes a Catch and Release competition to raise awareness of the need for sustainable exploitation of fish stocks throughout the islands.

The APO is the principal point of liaison for the Trust with angling clubs and community groups and has a particular emphasis on encouraging access, training new anglers and in youth development.
