Fisheries Protection

September 24, 2019

With the season coming to a close Fisheries Officers are still working hard to protect salmon from poachers. Poaching still goes on and can have a major impact on fish stocks, particularly when numbers are down across the country.

The support of the public is an important element in the fight against wildlife crime. Fisheries Officers secured a conviction this year thanks to a vigilant member of the public, who spotted suspicious activity.

Fisheries Officers can be contacted 24/7 on 013398 80411. All calls will be treated in the strictest confidence.
