This Final Salmon Action Plan (SAP) for the River Yealm catchment has been produced after consideration of feedback from external consultation. It provides a list of the agreed issues and actions for the next five years to maintain and improve the River Yealm salmon stock. These issues and actions follow on from the detailed analysis of the catchment, which is presented in the River Yealm SAP Consultation document. The main objective of the River Yealm SAP is to maintain, improve and develop the River Yealm salmon stocks to a sustainable level, that, on the basis of historic catch records, the catchment can clearly support. The actions presented within this Final SAP document clarify the important issues and factors currently limiting the salmon stock on the river. The resolution of these issues should ensure that a sustainable salmon population will be maintained for future generations. These issues have been costed and sources of funding and partners identified where possible.
