For a number of years, RAFTS has convened its annual conference in the Spring to discuss matters of interest to its members. In 2012, for the first time, and in recognition of the close working relationship between the two organisations, the conference will be jointly convened by RAFTS and ASFB.
The conference, entitled ‘Taking Practical Action in Straitened Times: Protecting, Managing and Promoting Scotland’s Rivers’, will take place on Thursday 29 March 2012 at The Battleby Institute, near Perth. There will be four sessions covering the policy and legislative context for fisheries management, genetics and its management applications, practical management and mitigation, and promoting access and use of fisheries . Full details can be found in the conference programme.
