Title: River Tamar marine index river : summary report of trapping of adult migratory salmonids at Gunnislake during 2003 season
Author: Environment Agency South West Region Cornwall Area
Document Type: Monograph
This report summarises the results of the Tamar Marine Index River Programme for the calendar year 2003. The report contains standard tables of results and graphs and highlights the main findings. The River Tamar is one of the premier salmon rivers in the South West region supporting the second highest salmon rod catch (in most years). This report is primarily concerned with the operation of the adult trap for the purpose of capturing adult migratory salmonids. In addition, the designation of the River Tamar as a marine index river ensures that this work will be supported by the operation of the fish counter, smolt trapping and tagging to enable the assessment of exploitation in the Irish drift net fishery and the monitoring of juvenile migratory salmonid densities in an index tributary. Details of this work will be provided in future reports.
