Atlantic salmon distribution in Scotland
This layer shows Atlantic salmon distribution in Scotland based on the information Marine Scotland currently holds. This has been collected since the mid 1980s from various sources including Fisheries Trust and Salmon Fishery Boards.
Salmon distribution is used as part of the annual river assessment which has been undertaken by Marine Scotland since 2016 for the Conservation of Salmon (Scotland) Regulations. More information on distribution data collection and salmon habitat can be found in the Focus Area Report to the North Atlantic Salmon Conservation Organization (NASCO) (see 'Additional Information' tab for links).
2019 is the focal year of the International Year of the Salmon, with research and outreach continuing through to 2022. https://yearofthesalmon.org/
