Management of the Wild Salmon & Sea Trout Tagging Scheme

Public consultation: have your say before December 1st. 

Inland Fisheries Ireland has launched a public consultation on the future management of the Wild Salmon and Sea Trout Tagging Scheme.

Public Consultation
Wednesday, 20/10/2021 - 10:00am

This public consultation opens on Wednesday, 20/10/2021 at 10:00am and closes on Wednesday, 01/12/2021 at 5:00pm

Inland Fisheries Ireland is welcoming the views of stakeholders as to how the current Wild Salmon & Sea Trout Scheme can be improved. This includes the issuing of licences, logbooks, tags and the reporting of catches.

The state agency is encouraging anyone with an interest in the area to submit their views on how the tagging system, which started in 2001, can be improved and modernised. It is especially keen to hear from salmon and sea trout anglers, angling clubs, commercial fishermen and those businesses that distribute salmon and sea trout licences, such as fishing tackle shops.

Make a submission before the deadline of 5pm on Wednesday, December 1st 2021.
