Improving smolt survival in rivers and estuaries
Conference on Tuesday, 14th and Wednesday, 15th March 2017
at the Guild Hall, Berwick-Upon-Tweed
This Conference is being jointly organised by:
It will address the key issue of improving salmon and sea trout smolt survival during the critical early stages of their migration, in rivers and in estuaries.
With fewer salmon surviving at sea, it is vital to ensure that as many healthy wild salmon and sea trout smolts as possible leave our rivers. The Conference will explore how this can best be achieved. Leading scientists will outline the results of the latest research into the factors affecting smolts numbers, such as predation, barriers to migration and pollution, in both rivers and inshore waters, and highlight the implications of this for the management of salmon and sea trout. Discussion sessions will focus on identifying practical action that can be taken to reduce mortality and areas where more research is needed.
The Conference will be held in the Guild Hall in the ancient town of Berwick-upon-Tweed, where the Conference Dinner will also take place. There is ample accommodation at a range of prices within walking distance, or a short drive away. These need to be booked directly with the establishment in question.
