A consultation on NRW’s salmon stocking

As a new organisation, Natural Resources Wales (NRW) is reviewing many aspects of the work we do to make sure they are as effective as possible in delivering for people, the economy and the environment

One programme of this work is the ‘Agenda for Change’ which looks at how NRW works with partners towards achieving sustainable inland fisheries for Wales.

As part of this we are considering all of our fisheries activities. This includes a review of our own existing salmon stocking activity and associated hatchery operations. In the review we are considering the rationale, justification and implications of NRW’s activities in rearing and stocking salmon into Welsh rivers, the implications of our considerations for others wanting to do this, and our own capacity in this work.

The review reported to our Executive Team just before Christmas. To assist NRW in making any final decisions as to the recommendations set out in the review, we are now carrying out this full public consultation and we would now like your views on the recommendations and any other comments you would like to make.

We particularly welcome evidence in support of your response.
