Tourism Malaysia promotes angling activities. With that in mind, we work closely with the Malaysia Association of Angling or better known by its Bahasa Malaysia name Persatuan Memancing Malaysia (PeMM). PeMM is an NGO registered in 1990. Its main objective is the promotion of angling activities and create public awareness on the importance of preserving aquatic life.
PeMM is also active in the management of educational programmes about fishing to students and the general public. The organization takes the conservation of local species and the protection of the environment,and promotes the catch and release doctrine.
