There are six District Salmon Fishery Boards covering the six main river catchments in Galloway.
Various details are provided below for the District Salmon Fishery Boards covering the Bladnoch, Kirkcudbrightshire Dee, Water of Fleet, Luce and Urr. The information here has been provided by each of the DSFBs.
The River Cree DSFB run their own website which provides similar information for the Cree.
The aims of this project are to improve both instream and riparian habitats for both salmonids and freshwater pearl mussels; freshwater pearl mussels are now a critically endangered species and there are very few known populations remaining in Scotland.
