Title: The Sea Trout Stock Collapse, 1989-1992
Author: K.F. Whelan
Document Type: Monograph
The sea trout collapse, which affected many fisheries in the mid-west of Ireland during the period 1989 - 1992 is described. Particular emphasis is placed on sea trout data from the Burrishoole catchment where quantitative estimates of survival are available. A general review of all research data relating to the collapse is discussed as a case history of a species requiring conservation in a limited portion of its range. The overall response to the collapse is assessed in terms of response time, the effectiveness of the actions taken, financing the response and future actions required to protect and enhance the remaining stocks.
