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.
GFT are presently sampling smolts caught in a fyke net at the inflow to Torhouse Fish Farm on the lower River Bladnoch. The fyke net also helps provide data on various other fish species within the Bladnoch catchment.
GFT are currently in the process of downloading data from temperature loggers which are in 20 sites across the river Bladnoch. The data gets downloaded twice a year; once in April and once in October.
GFT commissioned a Bolton based taxidermist, Phillip Leggett to create a realistic sparling model. This model accurately represents three adult sparling, which grow up to 30cm and are still present in the River Cree.
