Hatcheries closure decision may be challenged
In the July issue, Trout & Salmon is running a Save our Salmon feature and is asking readers to vote for one of eight projects. One is to raise finance to pay for an independent scientist to assess the evidence used by Natural Resources Wales to justify its decision to close all fish hatcheries in Wales being proposed by the Campaign for the Protection of Welsh Fisheries.
If you don’t read Trout & Salmon, details about the above project can be found at: www.saveoursalmon.org via which you can also vote for the project of your choice. All votes must be cast by the end of June and the project that receives the most votes will be announced in the September issue. Readers will then be invited to make a donation towards the cost of the winning project, which in the case of the Campaign’s proposal is £15,000.
