Records of rod caught salmon for 2017 and 2018: EIR release

Information request and response under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004.

Information requested

You asked for “records of rod caught salmon for 2018, and 2017 … similar sea trout figures too … net caught figures that would be of interest too, … Catch and catch/release if broken down”.


I enclose a copy of some of the information you requested (rod caught salmon for 2018, and 2017).

While our aim is to provide information whenever possible, in this instance we are unable to provide some of the information you have requested because an exception under regulation(s) 10(4)(d) (material in the course of completion, unfinished documents or imcomplete data) of the EIRs applies to that information.  The reasons why that exception(s) applies are explained in the Annex to this letter.

Regional catch data (which includes sea trout and net fisheries) is available from the Scottish Government website from the following link:
