Conservation of Salmon - Assessment for the 2018 fishing season

Scottish Ministers propose to continue to regulate the killing of salmon in Scotland, including a prohibition on retaining any salmon caught in coastal waters, by means of conservation regulations made under section 38 of the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 2003.
 
In accordance with regulation 2(1) of the Conservation of Salmon (Scotland) Regulations 2016 Marine Scotland has undertaken an assessment of the conservation status of salmon in inland waters in Scotland for the 2018 fishing season.  The outcome of that assessment, including proposed gradings for rivers and assessment groups in 2018, is now available on the Marine Scotland website here...
 
Ministers are required, under the terms of section 38 and schedule 1 of the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 2003, to publish notice of the proposals allowing a 28 day period for representations or objections to be made. Notice is hereby given that the 28 day consultation will be advertised and commence on Friday 15 September 2017.
 
Representations or objections in respect of the proposed conservation regulations should be submitted by Friday 13 October 2017 using the contact details below.
