Publication of provisional salmon fishery statistics
Provisional salmon fishery statistics are published to provide an early indication of the performance of the fishery. The status of salmon stocks, largely as derived from fishery data, will be considered with the publication of the final statistics later in the year.
The provisional statistics for the 2013 season are a summary of the data from 1,869 forms returned from 2,021 forms originally issued (92% return rate). Return rates for the final published statistics for the previous 10 years have been between 92% and 96%
Topic sheet no. 67 explains how we collect the catch statistics and is available for download at http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Topics/marine/science/Publications/Topicsheets/tslist
