Salmon Fishery District boundaries used by Scottish Government Marine Scotland for reporting annual statistics obtained from salmon catch returns made by the owners, occupiers and agents of salmon fisheries. There are 109 Salmon Fishery Districts (SFD) – see information on the layer fields below.
Salmon Fishery District boundaries were derived by Scottish Government Marine Scotland from Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) 1:50,000 river catchment boundaries, Institute of Hydrology 1:50,000 DTM data and the Salmon Fisheries (Scotland) Acts 1862-1868, with some input from District Salmon Fishery Boards.
