Author: Environment Agency South West Region South Wessex Area
Document Type: Monograph
This Hampshire Avon Salmon Action Plan (SAP) provides a clear statement of actions to be undertaken to bring about desired benefits to salmon fisheries, with costs, after consideration of feedback from external consultation. A key purpose of the final SAP is to be the reference document for monitoring progress (it is not a revamped version of the original consultation SAP). The Hampshire Avon Salmon Action Plan is the first drawn up by the South Wessex Area, South West Region. This national strategy identifies clear objectives allowing resources to be focused on priority activities. It provides consistent policies and a framework to manage stocks. The objectives for the future management of this resource are given as: optimise the number o f salmon returning to home water fisheries; maintain and improve the fitness and diversity of salmon stocks; optimise the total economic value of surplus stocks; meet the necessary costs of managing the resource. The Strategy document outlines how these could be achieved in practice, to ensure the sustainable exploitation of our salmon, so conserving this species for future generations.
