TAY DISTRICT SALMON FISHERIES BOARD

"PASSPORT TO THE REDDS"

An old report and no longer valid. Somewhere along the line the project never came to fruition.
What ever happened to it?

 

2000" At the present time with reduced salmon runs, especially in spring, it is important that anglers show restraint in the numbers of salmon they kill. With low stocks, there may not be a surplus of salmon in the river and so each fish killed may mean less in future.

One of the most effective things anglers can do to help is to release fish they really do not need. However, anglers are often uneasy over this practice because it is felt the fish may be caught and killed by another angler. One way of helping to prevent this is by tagging fish prior to release, so that released fish can be readily identified if caught a second time.

Following the example of some other rivers, the Tay District Salmon Fisheries Board is conducting a pilot project in 2000 to assess the feasibility of tagging. On selected beats, fish will be returned to the water with coloured numbered plastic tags attached to their adipose fin (see diagram).

The Board will be very grateful if anyone catching a fish with a tag would note it's number and, most importantly, release the fish alive again. A tag is, therefore, the salmon's "passport to the redds". The tag number should then be reported to the Board's Office along with details of when and where the fish was caught.
