The Salmon Scotland Wild Fisheries Fund has been established to prioritise investment from the salmon farming sector towards effective and practical wild fisheries management.

Applications are invited from relevant and constituted fisheries organisations within the shared space of Scottish salmon aquaculture and wild rod fisheries – for example Fishery Boards and Trusts, other constituted management bodies, other community associations.

2023 Applications

The fund opened for applications on 1st February 2023 and the closed on 31st March.

There was no limit to the size of grant that could be applied for, but Salmon Scotland encouraged both ambitious and small-scale applications, particularly by those organisations that historically have had limited funding opportunities available to them.

All applicants will report back on project progress and delivery after one year, which will be included in the Wild Fisheries Fund Annual Report. All projects should be completed within 18 months.

The fund is co-ordinated by fishery manager Jon Gibb, who is based in Fort William and has championed a constructive relationship between the farm-raised salmon sector and fisheries groups.
