Fishing in the South West is to be given a boost as the region has scooped the second largest grant in the country for fisheries projects.
The Environment Agency wants to improve angling in towns
As part of a development programme, Cornwall will receive £100,000 for salmon fisheries and coarse, trout and eel fishing. Devon will get £105,000.
The funding will go towards several projects in the counties, including fish passes for salmon.
The passes give salmon unrestricted access to spawning grounds.
The money is also being used to improve fishing facilities in towns.
In Exeter, the Bait (Better Angling In Towns) project aims to create an angling pond and wetlands at Valley Park near Exeter Canal.
The pond will be used to encourage junior angling and pond dipping, with the emphasis on conservation.
