Investing in our rivers to reverse the decline of salmon and sea trout: Our response to NRW

Jestre -salmon -release

GWCT Wales welcomes this investment to help tackle the negative effects of intensive agriculture across Wales on its rivers and streams and to protect and enhance massively depleted stocks of our iconic salmon and sea trout, but there is so much more to be done. We call for not only for a serious review of farming regulations but for proper monitoring and enforcement of the regulations which has been sadly lacking, the results of which we now see regularly in our rivers.
