Title: The Rivers Test and Itchen : salmon management plan : a consultation document
Author: National Rivers Authority Southern Region
Document Type: Monograph
This document provides factual information on the history and current status of the salmon populations of the Rivers Test and Itchen. The purpose of the document is to provide a basis for discussion and consultation with fishery owners, anglers and other fishery interests. The objective being to produce a definitive salmon strategy for the Hampshire rivers which is consistent with the NRA's National Salmon Strategy by June 1996. It is proposed that the overall aim is to address the very serious decline in the salmon runs on both rivers and achieve self sustaining populations which provide annual runs of approximately 4,000 salmon on the Test and 1,500 salmon on the Itchen. The current runs on the Test and Itchen (based on 1994 figures) are 775 and 374 respectively. The Test and Itchen Salmon Strategy will provide clear objectives and targets. The way to achieve those targets will be identified with responsibilities and timescales.
