How does Embryo do this?

The Embryo Story

Embryo has two functions.

Firstly to buy and lease our own fisheries. Our venues are run as affordable fisheries with local anglers in mind, with a focus on helping young anglers access the many benefits that angling can offer. Any profits made from venues will be reinvested into the next project.

Secondly we help others protect their lakes from the increasing threat of otter predation. We have fenced numerous lakes since 2015. As well as using our own funds to fence lakes, we also offer a cut price fencing service and can supply fencing materials at a low cost. This is a viable long term project where the maximum amount of angling clubs and syndicates  can benefit from the services.

Embryo is focused on the future of the sport, we have a close relationship with numerous stakeholders and through work with these (and independently) to look at alternative methods of predation prevention.

The story (so far) in numbers

Lakes open

As of Summer 2018, Embryo has 13 different lakes open as fisheries from Yorkshire to Surrey.

26+

Miles of Fencing

Since 2015 we installed over 45km of otter fencing, this equates to crossing the ‘English Channel’ twice!

Funded fences

Embryo has paid out the full amount (or the ‘lions’ share) required to fence 6 lakes at no cost and with no ties to the clubs who run the lakes.

Behind the scenes

Meet The Team

Embryo is spearheaded by a small ‘full time’ team of staff. Across the team there is a huge variety of skill sets but all with an underlying passion for the project.

Embryo relies heavily on the input and work by volunteers at the lakes. All of these people from ‘Fishery Managers’, ‘Bailiffs’ to members on work parties have helped to create the successful lakes and operations we run today.
