James Ingall (Dee(K)DSFB chairman) provided a summary of the previous years activities on the river and highlighted the importance of the Wild Fisheries Review currently taking place in Scotland and due to conclude in September. Rowan and Jamie gave two short presentations; the first a more general GFT annual report, including initial findings from the Celtic Sea Trout Project, catch and trap data from 2013 and a CIRB update and the second; an update on Dee work including education projects facilitated by the Dee hatchery, Vaki data analysis and ongoing compensation flow trials at Tongland. Tim Ewing produced a bailiff and hatchery update.
The minutes of this meeting will shortly be posted on our website. The board is due to meet again in October.
