Wild Salmon Strategy launched by Scottish Government

January 18, 2022

The Wild Salmon Strategy was launched last Friday, and has been long-awaited since it's original release date of September 2020 was put back.

Scottish Government acknowledge that our salmon are on the brink of a crisis, and set out a number of pressures to be addressed to save our salmon. We agree with them on the pressures identified, although there is little detail in this 21-page strategy.

This is a step forward and we will be pressing upon government to take action urgently, as there is no need to delay until the Implementation Plan is completed in 12 months time. We have produced a summary of the Strategy and provided our comments, which can be viewed here
