Title: A strategy for the management of salmon in England and Wales
Author: National Rivers Authority
Document Type: Monograph
The primary aim of this NRA document is to propose clear objectives and recommend a strategy for the future management of salmon in England and Wales. However, it is hoped that it could also contribute to future strategies which might be developed for the British Isles or even the North East Atlantic. The NRA has a duty, under the Water Resources Act 1991, to maintain, improve and develop the salmon, trout, freshwater and eel fisheries under its jurisdiction. It also has a duty to regulate these fisheries and prevent their illegal exploitation. The majority of the NRAs powers to regulate and protect fisheries are defined in the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries Act 1975, supplemented by the Salmon Act 1986.
