We are a unique organisation which fights pollution and other damage to water environments throughout the UK. Water pollution kills hundreds of thousands of fish each year which has a huge impact on local economies, aquatic wildlife and the enjoyment of angling clubs. Rivers and stillwaters are also under threat from water abstraction, escaped farmed fish, weirs and flood defence works. The ACA aims to stop this damage happening and to seek compensation for our members when it does.
We are currently fighting about 60 legal cases on behalf of our members. We make polluters pay hundreds of thousands of pounds in compensation every year and secure injunctions to stop further damage
