Tackling the Demise of Salmon & Sea Trout

Following the Salmon Summit in November 2015, a group of partners, headed by the Environment Agency, has launched an initiative to address the demise of salmon and sea trout in England.

The Salmon Five Point Approach – Restoring Salmon in England brings Govt agencies and a host of NGO partners together to implement a series of new measures and invigorate existing ones to maximise smolt production in freshwater and minimise marine mortality. Many of the issues facing salmon also majorly impact sea trout stocks – reduced flow, pollution and barriers in rivers, legal and illegal fishing at sea – so WTT is pleased to offer its full support to the initiative.
