Recovery under way for salmon in Scottish rivers

September 25th, 2012 0 comments

 

 

Great News! Salmon numbers in Scotland’s rivers have stabilised and may be starting to increase thanks to anglers throwing back nearly all of their catch, according to an analysis just published. 
 
Fishermen using rods caught 87,915 salmon and grilse last year, a drop of more than 20 per cent on the record levels recorded in 2010 but still the sixth highest figure on record.
 
More than seven out of ten fish were released (73 per cent), including 91 per cent of spring salmon. In 1994, less than one per cent of salmon were thrown back.
