Outer Hebrides Sea Trout Project

This project involves the tagging of sea trout taken in sweep nets in bays and estuaries in the Outer Hebrides. The aim of the project is use information from recaptured fish to gain a clearer understanding of sea trout movement at all age stages within bays and estuaries and a clearer insight into the migration routes and behaviour of local sea trout populations. The project has been delayed for a number of reasons, with the funding carried forward; however, a number of fish were successfully tagged in 2016.

Partners: Outer Hebrides Fisheries Trust; Atlantic Salmon Trust 

AST Funding; £2,500 in 2014
