Fishery Management Plan 2014-2018

The Nith District Salmon Fishery Board and Nith Catchment Fishery Trust have published the 2014-2018 Nith Catchment Fishery Management Plan.  This Fishery Management Plan takes account of changes over the previous five year period and proposes management actions considered necessary for the next five year period.

Predicting future requirements for fisheries management within the catchment is difficult at best due to the uncontrollable influences of weather, climate and the fact that migratory species spend a large proportion of their lifecycle in the marine environment, beyond our control. The success or failure of actions taken today can only be assessed, at the earliest, five years on. This reflects the time period of the lifecycle of migratory salmonids. Some management actions such as habitat improvements will take at least 10 to 15 years to mature and yield results within the fishery.  To read the plan please follow the link below. A summary of all of the prescriptions identified within the plan can be also be found below.
