Salmon Fishing Row

Last week Usan Fisheries pleaded guilty in Forfar Sheriff Court to illegal netting of Salmon under the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 2003. Sentencing of Usan will take place following a proof of mitigation hearing scheduled for 31 March. Salmon and Trout Association (Scotland) chairman Hughie Campbell Adamson said "We welcome Usan's admission that it has been fishing illegally. Salmon runs are severely depleted and it is more important than ever that those with netting rights exercise them responsibly and certainly within the law. Maximising illegal exploitation by systematically ignoring the weekly close time is indefensible. Such activity amounts to wildlife crime - pure and simple."  Scottish Land & Estates is supportive of all fishing to be carried out responsibly and within the law to ensure the conservation of salmon in Scottish rivers.
