Sea angling is a popular activity in the UK that has social and economic benefits, but can also impact on fish stocks. Data on sea angling participation, catches, and economics are needed by government and stakeholders to support well-informed decisions and sustainable management of fisheries. Here, we provide estimates of the numbers of sea anglers, how often they fish, and what they caught in the UK in 2018 and 2019. We used the approach developed in 2016–17, combining the outputs from two surveys each year.
