An Early Christmas Present for Atlantic Salmon

An Early Christmas Present for Atlantic Salmon


The Atlantic Salmon Trust really welcomes the Environment Agency decision to close the Northumbrian drift net fishery and to prevent those remaining T & J nets from taking salmon from 2019 onwards. This decision helps protect those fish that have successfully survived the perils and challenges they face in this rapidly changing world, giving them a chance to pass on their genes to future generations.
