2019 Reporting Rod Effort

Written by Ted Eadie on .

Conservation of Salmon - Assessment for the 2020 Season.

Proposal from Marine Scotland.

Collecting rod effort information - from the 2019 season we are asking anglers, proprietors and owners of fisheries to complete a simple new return reporting rod effort as the total number of rod days fished for salmon in each month. Our aim is to use these data to increase the accuracy of estimates of the total number of fish returning to rivers and to help explain trends in rod catch data. A Marine Scotland Topic Sheet issued in December 2018 and can be found at   https://www2.gov.scot/Topics/marine/Publications/TopicSheets/tslist/ts103.
