What We Do


The aim of the Galloway Fisheries Trust is to restore and maintain aquatic biodiversity, particularly native fish, in Galloway by means of practical, responsible and sustainable approaches to land, water and fishery management, based on sound science, for the benefit of the community as a whole.

We achieve our objectives through providing advice, undertaking research and completing practical works to protect and enhance native fish stocks across the freshwaters of Dumfries and Galloway region. The Dumfries and Galloway Region is shown on the map to the right.

To read in more detail about different aspects of the work that we do please use the 'About' and 'Projects' drop down menus above, or links below, to browse the pages.

Dumfries & Galloway Region

We work across most of the freshwaters of the region.  Our core work area covers the river catchments Luce, Bladnoch, Cree, Water of Fleet, Kirkcudbrightshire Dee, Urr and Border Esk.
