    Default Sea trout report 25 years in the making ...

    Inland Fisheries Ireland, a government agency, conclude that salmon farms are a threat to sea trout. This is hardly news to anyone using this site but it is another confirmation that aquaculture, as it stands today, is a dirty business contributing to the destruction of a species - or two. Debate over really no matter how loudly the fish farmers shout.

    Thatís a good start for Ireland. A government agency acknowledging the problems we have known about for years. Next step is government action. How much is fish farming worth to the Irish economy?

    Good luck to those who fish the Scottish rivers. I think you will have a more difficult job with SNP but I wish you every success in getting the message through and more importantly getting them to take some meaningful action.

    I wonder if there will be a mention of this in next months T&S. Apparently they like to report both sides of the argument! Or maybe the so called voice of UK trout/salmon anglers, will report more pish from the so called 'independent consultant'.

    Default many reports

    "shame its taken so long Any government response yet or will it fall on deaf ears?"

    There have been many, many interim reports but none as comprehensive as this. Fish farmers will find it hard, I hope, to undermine this one.

    An oral hearing on a proposed salmon farm at Shot Head - Marine Harvest, who else? - in Bantry Bay opens next month. Hopefully, this report will influence the decisions made. I'm sad that it can only be a hope but I can't understand how science like this can be set aside.

    Interesting post on another thread on this subject:

    Perhaps then that's an explanation

    Everyone else surely remembers the Triumverate (SCS effectively in league with farmers to stop wild harvest)...

    To one who has roved on the mountains afar
    Oh! For the crags that are wild and magestic
    The steep frowning glories of dark Lochnagar.
