An additional element has been added to the Scottish Government's consultation regarding prohibiting the taking of wild salmon unless under licence.
A new environmental report has been added and consultees are asked for their opinions on the environmental impacts of such licensing measures.
As before, the deadline for all responses is April 30th, 2015. The SGA Fishing Group will be responding to the consultation but urges that all those with wild fisheries and angling interests should also respond as individuals.
