Scottish salmon and sea trout fishery statistics 2023

Summary of the salmon and sea trout fishery catch statistics updated for the 2023 season.

Salmon Fishery Regulations

Statutory conservation measures are in place to regulate the killing of salmon in the early months of the fishing season, in coastal waters, and to protect stocks of poor conservation status.

Although specifically related to salmon fisheries, these regulations may also have an impact on the catch and effort data reported for Scottish sea trout as some fisheries target both species.
