Title: Sea trout in England and Wales
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
Under the Water Resources Act (1991), the National Rivers Authority has a duty to maintain, improve and develop fisheries including those for sea trout. The formation of the NRA makes it possible to develop consistent policies for the management of sea trout stocks throughout England and Wales and to institute a national programme of sea trout research. The aims of this report are to: i) Assess current information on the status of sea trout stocks in England and Wales; ii) Consider what information and resources are required to manage sea trout stocks effectively; iii) Propose a strategy for the future management of sea trout stocks by the NRA. Much of the source material for this report has been provided by three separate studies which were commissioned by the NRA during 1990/1991. These studies, referred to frequently within this report, are published as NRA Fisheries Technical Reports 2, 3 and 4 (2. Elliott, 1992; 3. Elliott, et al. 1992; 4. Cross and Rogan, 1992).
