The RTC is a member of Fisheries Management Scotland (FMS) and complies with its Code of Good Governance.
We have also adopted the Seven Principles of Public Life, as advised by The Committee on Standards in Public Life, an independent public body which advises governments on ethical standards.
We do not serve for a minimum or maximum term, and are unpaid.
There are more fishery proprietors on the river than there are places for them on the RTC. Proprietors wanting to join are put on a waiting list, and elected in order when existing proprietorial commissioners stand down.
The Chairman of the RTC is elected from and by the RTC, and serves for a minimum of three years.
