Scale Report 2015-2018

November 08, 2019

The River Dee Trust has published a short report in which it presents the finding of scale reading between 2015 and 2018. A salmon scale contains the life history of the fish and makes for interesting reading. The report provides details on:

  • the age of juvenile fish prior to smolting and the difference between the upper and lower catchment.
  • the time spent at sea before returning to the Dee and the differences between spring and summer and autumn fish
  • weight and length information plotted against historical weights and lengths

The report can be viewed buy clicking the link below.
