The primary role of the Wester Ross Fisheries Trust is the collection and compilation of scientific data relating to fish populations in the area. Our work supports fisheries conservation and management and informs many people involved with looking after our rivers and lochs. Our main field season is from June through to the end of October. Data are analysed and reports drafted during winter months. To extend awareness of fisheries related issues, the Trust attends local ‘open days’ and a range of meetings with representatives of government and non-government organisations. The Trust has developed several school-based education projects including 'Salmon in the Classroom' and 'Life in Lochs'. Two newsletters and an annual review are produced each year. This website is intended to provide further access to information about fisheries investigations, monitoring and management in the area and updates on WRFT activities.
