The Aims of Fisheries Awareness Week are:
- To encourage adults and children alike who may never have fished before to take up a new hobby.
- To work with angling clubs and organisations to promote all types of angling.
- To promote the role the fisheries service has in protecting and conserving our fisheries resource.
