Salmon and sea trout fishing (fixed engine and net & coble fisheries)

What is it: 

Salmon fishing and sea trout fishing rights in Scotland fall into one of three broad categories:

(i) Fixed engine fisheries are restricted to the coast and must be set outside estuary limits;

(ii) Net and coble fisheries generally operate in estuaries and the lower reaches of rivers;

(iii) Rod and line fisheries comprise angling activities which generally take place within rivers and above tidal limits.

The MAPS NMPi layer shows fixed engine and net & coble station locations for catches over the time period specified in the layer name.
