This report describes work undertaken in 1990, Year One of the period pre-construction of the Cardiff Bay Barrage in vhich base-line data on the salmonid fisheries of the River Taff were collected. The total known return of salmon to the Taff this year was 195, the highest total yet recorded since the recovery of the river from industrial pollution. The majority of these were caught by electrofishing late in the year (100 fish) or by angling (72 fish), and the remainder were caught by trapping (25 fish). The total known return of sea trout was 169 of vhich 22 were electrofished, 85 were caught by angling and the remaining 62 by trapping. In the adjacent River Ely which will also be impounded, 51 salmon (35 by electrofishing and 16 mortalities) and 73 sea trout (56 by electrofishing and 17 mortalities) were recorded.
