Editors comments on Tay District Salmon Fisheries Board Recommendations

The TDSFB recommendations are far too open to abuse and are unintelligible to the average angler. They will have little impact on survival of stocks. It needs a radical change... so here are some thoughts:.

Rules need to be simple, enforceable and economically sound.

1. No salmon over 10lb to be killed. (Any time of year by whatever method until stocks of MSW fish have recovered as defined by SEPA).

2. All salmon anglers to use monofilament of 15lb+ (Allows bailiffs to differentiate between trout and salmon anglers and stops stress on salmon, legislation for trout is already set a 4lb).

3. Only single hooks to be used. (Sorry, but if you are an angler you will know what I mean)

4. Only salmon killed should be assessed for the levy. (It is absurd that owners should be charged for all fish, including those played and released. (There must be some incentive for conservation and a disincentive for beats that just want to kill fish)

Many will say that this would harm the economy as anglers will go elsewhere. My answer is simple .. let them be fishmongers elsewhere, preferably at Billingsgate.

Have your say on:
