Salmon & Recreational Fisheries

Scotland's freshwater fish populations are of international natural heritage value. They are the basis for fisheries of global renown.

Scotland's river systems support one of the largest and most diverse Atlantic salmon resources in Europe. There are also many fisheries for brown trout.

In addition, coarse fish species, such as pike and perch, provide sport for an increasing number of coarse angling enthusiasts. There are also now many put-and-take fisheries for Rainbow trout.
