Title: Usk salmon : recommendations for action
Author: G.W. Mawle
Document Type: Monograph
The National Rivers Authority has a statutory duty to maintain, develop and improve salmon fisheries (Water Act 1991). To fulfil this duty, the NRA considers that action is required to conserve and restore components of the Usk salmon stock upon which both commercial and rod fisheries depend. This document aims to outline the reasons for the Authority concerns. Its specific objectives are: (i) to document, within a historical context, the current status of the fisheries; (ii) to identify, as far as possible, the problems affecting the fisheries; (iii) to outline options for management action to rectify or mitigate these problems.
