    The Ilfracombe Fish Trail was created by the Ilfracombe and District Tourism Association in partnership with North Devon Council. Funding came from both organisations, and also from the North Devon FLAG.

    FLAG is a partnership that has come together to support all aspects of ‘Northern Devon Fisheries’ and has been successful in securing funding from the European Fisheries Fund, known as Axis 4, which is there to support the sustainable development of fisheries.
