Wild Fisheries – Protecting the Rights of Anglers

A news release relating to Wild Fisheries Reform has just been issued by Scottish Government.

Proposals to introduce rod licences and a new wild fisheries levy will no longer be taken forward. In addition proposals to overhaul the restructure and remit of District Salmon Fishery Boards will not go-ahead, instead Scottish Government will encourage the piloting of voluntary board merges. Fishery management plans will be developed to trial any changes with boards and to explore potential freshwater conservation provisions ahead of the introduction of a Bill to Parliament.

Scottish Land & Estates has welcomed the clarity provided by the Cabinet Secretary’s recent statement on wild fisheries reform.

The full announcement can be viewed here.
