Inland Fisheries Ireland are seeking the views of people in Donegal on ways to improve Wild Salmon and Sea Trout Tagging Scheme.
The Wild Salmon and Sea Trout Tagging Scheme was set-up twenty years ago as part of a series of measures introduced to help with the management and conservation of Ireland’s wild salmon and sea trout populations, which have been in decline.
Inland Fisheries is encouraging people in Donegal with an interest in the area to submit their views on how the tagging system, which started in 2001, can be improved and modernised.
It is especially keen to hear from salmon and sea trout anglers in the region, angling clubs, commercial fishermen and businesses that distribute salmon and sea trout licences, such as fishing tackle shops.
The review aims to make the tagging system more user-friendly and to ensure that it can provide the agency with real-time, accurate data to assist with the protection, management and conservation of wild salmon and sea trout.
The public consultation closes at 5pm on Wednesday, December 1st. People can make submissions online via the following link; https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BradanConsultation.
