From Headwater to Headland
This Conference being jointly organised by
and is sponsored by the Environment Agency,the Wild Trout Trust, the Angling Trust, and Salmon and Trout Conservation UK. 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.
