A slow and steady decline in the Boyne. Catch and release for 10 years now. Note 2010 & 2011 the CL was higher, the adjusted surplus deficit is in brackets. Gone from an estimated 5547 salmon to 2250. There used to be an online fish counter back around 2004 / 2005 and if I remember correctly the count was above 10,000. Sad times.

2016 Drogheda Boyne 10239 -7989 0.22
