Salmon Added to ‘Fish to Avoid List’

The Marine Conservation Society has added Scottish Wild Salmon to its list of fish to avoid eating. The charity blames a lack of appropriate management measures to prevent the over-fishing of wild Scottish Salmon where stocks are low and as the absence of internationally recognised conservation limits. On a more positive note their Fisheries Officer Bernadette Clarke said recent calls for Scottish ministers to limit Salmon exploitation could help. She pointed out that unlike most other members of the North Atlantic Salmon Conservation Organisation (NASCO), Scotland has not yet set conservation limits for its Salmon rivers and, according to NASCO, has almost no management regime in place to prevent an increase in coastal netting.
