Local salmon action plans provide a means by which the Environment Agency can implement the aims and objectives of the' national salmon management strategy, as introduced in February 1996. This strategy represents an entirely new approach to salmon management within the UK and introduces the concept of river specific salmon spawning targets as a salmon management tool. In addition, salmon action plans have for the first time, attempted to evaluate in economic terms, all of the contributory components of the salmon fishery. The River Tavy Salmon Action Plan follows that for the River Tamar and River Lynher and is the third of seven action plans that will be produced for salmon rivers managed by the Cornwall Area FER department. The salmon action plans for the remaining five rivers:- the River Fowey, River Camel, River Plym and the River Yealm will be written within the next three years following a similar format. The River Tavy Salmon Action Plan contains a description of the river catchment and highlights particular features that are relevant to the salmon population and the associated fishery.
