Tay District Salmon Fisheries Board Home Page


The Tay District Salmon Fisheries Board is the statutory body empowered to protect and improve the salmon fisheries in the Tay district.

This means looking after not just Atlantic salmon - Salmo Salar but the River Tay as a whole.

This website provides details of its activities, including information on governance, meetings and information on the salmon and salmon fisheries of the River Tay, the largest salmon river in Scotland.
