Title: Historic overview of the sea trout collapse in the West of Ireland
Author: K.F. Whelan
Document Type: Monograph
Details of the sequence of events culminating in the sea trout stock collapse of 1989 have previously been published (Whelan, 1991,1992,1993 and Whelan & Poole, 1993). The present paper draws on these accounts and provides supplementary information on stock and catch fluctuations over the years 1990 to 1992 and on sea trout catches in the U.K. over the same period.
