Clean Angling is a program of the Invasive Species Action Network a non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the human-caused spread of aquatic invasive species by promoting voluntary behavior change. The Clean Angling program was created in 2007 and continues to unify diverse partners in the fight against aquatic invasive species. There are a number of resources available to Coalition members. These documents define the work of the Clean Angling Coalition. Please contact us if you have any questions.
The mission of the Clean Angling Coalition is to promote voluntary cleaning practices and behavior change that involves everyone in cleaning. We need help from anglers, angling businesses and organizations to participate in Inspect, Clean and Dry practices. This means that we work with angling businesses like rod and wader companies, guides and outfitters, fly shops and everyone that cares about protecting our fishing resources. Inspect, Clean and Dry every time.
As with many successful efforts - there is strength in numbers. The Coalition is a means by which partners not only help spread the valued lessons of Inspect, Clean and Dry, but partners also have the satisfaction of knowing their commitment protects our aquatic resources from invasive species.
