Last week the Scottish Government announced the commencement of a 28 day consultation period with regards to the licensing system for the regulation of the killing of wild salmon.

It is the opinion of the committee that the proposals as they currently stand will directly threaten the future well being of our system.

We would therefor urge all members and interested parties to view the proposals, register for the discussion and make appropriate comment.

Without a ground swell of opposition these proposals will go ahead and this will lead to fundamental changes in the way your system is run relative to the exploitation of salmon. There is no time for apathy. Members must act now and respond to the challenge.
