Fisheries Management Scotland welcome Scottish Government funding

Fisheries Management Scotland welcome the announcement of significant support for efforts to address challenges around salmon stocks.

Dr Alan Wells, Chief Executive of FMS said:

“We are delighted that Scottish Government have responded through the announcement of significant financial support for fisheries management. Our member District Salmon Fishery Boards and Fishery Trusts make a hugely significant contribution to maintaining and improving our freshwater environment, but these efforts are limited by lack of funding. This support will make a significant contribution to research and monitoring efforts and will help to facilitate voluntary DSFB mergers, where there is a local wish to pursue this.

We also welcome the clear recognition, of the efforts that our members are making to address a range of pressures on Scottish salmon stocks.”
