National Adult Salmon Sampling Project

The Esk District Salmon Fishery Board and Marine Scotland Science in Montrose are engaged in a project with certain beats to sample salmon caught by anglers on the North and South Esks. 

As part of the sampling, a small number of fish will be anaesthetised to allow more detailed sampling.  Fish that have been anaesthetised must not be eaten due to the toxic nature of the anaesthetic, and these fish will be marked using floy tags (see attached photo), a small strip of plastic injected into the back of the salmon near the dorsal fin.

 Please note any floy-tagged fish are NOT to be consumed if they have to be killed. 


Changes to fishings

The association have entered into an agreement with the MacPhie's at Glenbervie House to suspend fishing from the Knockhill bridge down steam on both banks for about 3/4 of a mile, fishing will resume about half a mile above the railway viaduct at Mondynes.
New signs are being made to mark all the association's boundaries (see below), just follow the direction of the finger on the sign
Should any members have any query about the new restriction please contact the secretary.

Our map of the Bervie fishings has been updated to reflect the above.
