Our friends at The Rivers Trust have published their latest State of Our Rivers Report and it was launched in the House of Lords on Tuesday 27th February. Fisheries Management Scotland were pleased to contribute content in relation to Scotland and we were delighted to join The Rivers Trust for the launch. The report emphases how vital it is to have healthy rivers. They are a powerful ally in combating climate change, they support a wealth of biodiversity, and they benefit our physical and mental well-being.

It is safe to say that our rivers are far from thriving.

The report combines data, insightful maps, and illuminating case studies, to really dive into just how our waterbodies are faring both nationally and locally. Uncover the most pressing issues, identify the most polluting industries, explore potential solutions, and understand the need for urgent action to restore our rivers.
