ASFB call for no salmon to be killed before 17th May

The Association of Salmon Fishery Boards have started a campaign calling for no wild salmon to be killed before mid-May (http://www.asfb.org.uk/asfb-calls-for-zero-exploitation-of-salmon-before-mid-may/). This campaign is an effort to protect the spring salmon run and the Argyll DSFB is supporting the initiative.  We would therefore be obliged if all proprietors would ask their anglers to return all salmon caught before the 17th May.

2013 levy payments

All the 2013 levy payment invoices have now been sent out. If you haven’t received yours please get in touch. If paying by bank transfer please remember to put your surname or beat number (e.g. Nell100) as a reference, otherwise we won’t know who has paid it.

Please help us by paying on time. Having to send out reminders uses up time that could be better spent on other things such as responding to the numerous consultations we receive about new fish farms, wind farms and hydro schemes that could potentially affect your fisheries.
