AJS Fisheries is striving to create the UK's leading One Stop Fishery Management and Aquaculture Hub for professionals, institutions, fisheries and clubs. We offer a range of fishery management tools, products and treatments developed over thirty years of practical experience.

In addition, we are happy to provide a fishery management helpline for anyone who needs guidance or help with any aspect of water body or aquatic life management.


Finally, not forgetting our fisheries themselves, we have over 200 acres of stunning angling venues, including specimen carp, course and trout waters located across Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire with a new online application and booking system.

Please take a look around and meet our team below:
