It was an excellent day and at the conference the latest 'Fisheries Management Scotland Annual Review' was made available.  We took a box of these reports for interested people to pick up from the GFT Office or we can post them out.  Please get in touch if you want one of the reports.

The FMS report covers many interesting subjects including; International Year of the Salmon, habitat restoration, pearl mussel work, mining issues, fish counters, Greenland salmon fishery, fish farming regulation, The likely suspects framework, rod catches in 2018 and the 2018 drought.  There is even an interesting article in it by Courtney Rowland about our 'Saving the Sparling' Project!

Please do call, pop in or email us if you want a copy of the report.  It's a good read!
