Scottish Wild Salmon Strategy

The Scottish Wild Salmon Strategy sets out the vision, objectives and priority themes to ensure the protection and recovery of Scottish Atlantic wild salmon populations.


2. A vision for Scotland’s wild Atlantic salmon

Vision

Scotland’s wild Atlantic salmon populations are flourishing and an example of natures recovery. We will achieve this through the application of best-practice science and management.

Objectives

  • Scotland’s rivers have healthy, self-sustaining populations of wild Atlantic salmon that achieve good conservation status.
  • Wild salmon management is evidence-based and underpinned by integrated data gathering, research and dissemination.
  • The environmental and socio-economic benefits arising from healthy wild Atlantic salmon populations are identified and maximised through partnerships between the public, private and charitable sectors.
