The November 2019 issue of ‘the River‘ includes a brief comment on the 2019 season – for salmon, sea-trout and brown trout, and a report on how our tagged fish fared this year. There’s a report from our Head Fishery Officer on the enforcement duties of the RTC’s team this season, and an update on the October avian predation counts, undertaken last month. Finally, following this Spring’s pilot salmon smolt tracking study, the Tweed Foundation is planning to expand the study in 2020.
We very much hope that anglers, proprietors, and all with an interest in the river will feel able to support this important acoustic tracking work on Tweed by sponsoring a tag. Will your 2020 tagged salmon smolt do better than this year’s? Further details on our 2020 sponsorship programme will follow shortly – and in time for Christmas!
