RIVER GRADINGS FOR 2019 SALMON SEASON ANNOUNCED


The gradings for all of Scotland's 173 salmon rivers have been laid before Parliament and will take affect from 1st April 2019.
The gradings are an analysis of conservation status of salmon on each river and dictate whether fish can be taken sustainably or whether mandatory catch and release must be applied.
To find the status of each river, go to https://scotland.shinyapps.io/sg-salmon-conservation/
and use the drop-down menu.
