Yesterday we welcomed Mairi Gougeon, Cabinet Secretary for Rural Affairs and Islands to the river Deveron. We were pleased to highlight the newly installed fish counter (ARIS Sonar) and pit tag arrays (detectors) funded by Scottish Government. The equipment will be used for a new collaborative project between the Scottish Government, Atlantic Salmon Trust and the Deveron, Bogie and Isla Rivers Charitable Trust.

This ground-breaking project has seen significant investment with the aim of monitoring smolts leaving the river and the subsequent counting of returning adult salmon.We also took the opportunity to discuss with the Cabinet Secretary the worrying demise of Atlantic Salmon in the river Deveron and nationwide. We particularly highlighted local issues such as water quality (diffuse pollution, water quantity, water temperatures) and predation on adult and juvenile salmon.
