It really is time practitioners had a say rather than those who think they know best!

Marine Scotland Scientist are using data from Pacific salmon that is often done with little regard to the fishes river of origin. Comparing this to what is done in small hatcheries in Scotland is totally misleading and worst of all. BAD Science, by people who do know better!

It is vital that policy decisions with respect to the salmon fishing industry take full account of the extraordinary expertise that exists in the ghillie community.

Save the Atlantic Salmon

If the people who run this valuable resource get it wrong, how can we turn the return of this magnificent heritage ( Atlantic Salmon) around. What is there to lose with a trial period of hatcheries? My local river The Tyne in East Lothian had a hatchery for years. The river was full of fish. Since the hatchery ceased, the river is struggling to restock itself. Not helped by poaching which is not being pursued by the local authorities.
