Italian Federation of Sport Fishing and Underwater Activities

History of FIPSAS

Costitution

The first interest in sport fishing saw some activity in Italy already in the thirties. The Federation, however, was formed on 27 June 1942, remaining active until 8 September 1943. It began operating again in 1945, under joint management with hunting and shooting organisations under the government-appointed commission of CONI. In the postwar period, at a conference held in Bologna in 1947, the foundations for the overhaul of FIPS were laid. This took place in April 1948, at a National Assembly held in Florence. In 1949, the Federation welcomed practitioners of underwater activity and swimming with flippers into the competitive sector. Since 1984, the Federation has acknowledged the inclusion of four disciplines: inland fishing, sea fishing, underwater fishing, finswimming.

Denomination

Originally Federazione Italiana della Pesca Sportiva or“Italian Federation of Game Fishing”; from 1948 it became Federazione Italiana Pesca Sportiva (FIPS or “Italian Federation of Sports Fishing”) which later in 1968, had the division of Attività Subacquee or "Underwater Activities” added to it without changing the acronym. The amendment to FIPSAS was ratified by the CONI National Board of 4 May 1995.
