The Tweed needs protecting...

The Tweed Foundation was set up in 1983 by the RTC to protect and enhance the freshwater fish stocks in the River and is a charitable company limited by guarantee. It is one of the leading organisations in the field of fisheries research and management, but operates with a small and dedicated team that relies on donations from the membership, riparian owners, the RTC and others to fulfil its work programme; it has no public funding.

The Foundation carries out a tremendous volume of work in order to provide the Tweed Fishery managers, including the RTC, with objective scientific information on which to base fisheries management decisions.  It is fundamental to the well-being of the River that all of this work continues and, as a charitable trust, your support is crucial in keeping the momentum going and safeguarding the River for future generations to enjoy.

If you would like to speak with a member of the team before you make a donation please contact us.

Please support The Foundation’s work in any way you can.

Sponsor a Tweed Smolt 2024

Each year we tag Smolts leaving the Tweed to monitor their survival and this year 1000 Salmon and 500 Sea trout smolts will be tagged. Losses at this stage of the Atlantic salmon life cycle cannot be replaced. With numbers of returning adult salmon continuing to decline, we need to make sure as many smolts make it to the sea as possible. Please support our work by sponsoring a smolt.
