Title: The regulation of salmon angling in Great Britain
Author: Salmon Advisory Committee
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: Co-published with the Scottish Office Agriculture, Environment and Fisheries Department and the Welsh Office Agriculture Department
This Salmon Advisory Committee report summarises regulations of salmon angling in Great Britain, providing a comprehensive historical background on salmon angling as well as catches, economics and financing of fisheries management. Also measures to control angling explotation are given. This section summarises the various measures that can be used to control salmon angling. The methods most commonly applied restrict access to the fishery in time (close periods) or space (restricted areas), make angling less efficient (e.g. bait restrictions) or directly restrict the number or description (e.g. size) of fish that may be taken. References are made to the ways in which the legislation is or may be used in England and Wales or Scotland. Where measures are not employed in Great Britain, examples are given of their use to control salmon angling in other countries.
