Marine Scotland Science published the draft catch returns for 2013 today. Full details can be found here .
I don’t find the published format particularly user friendly; no annual totals for each river, two different spreadsheets for fish retained and released etc. There is a bit of work to do to compile the totals for each river but I suppose it keeps biologists out of mischief for a wee while. Hopefully you will be able to figure out the relative catches for each river.
Is it worth noting that the proportion of the total taken by nets increased from 16% in 2012 to 34% in 2013? No surprise I suppose, drought conditions always suit the netsmen.
