STOCK NETTING WATER POLLUTION HYDROPOWER
AND FISH PASSAGE DECLINING WILD
Who we are and what we do
"Game anglers influencing national decision makers over the management and protection of salmon, trout and sea trout; the conservation of water and the diverse environments upon which all aquatic life depends.”
The Salmon & Trout Association (S&TA) was established in 1903 to address the damage done to our rivers by the polluting effects of the Industrial Revolution. For 108 years, the Association has worked to protect fisheries, fish stocks and the wider aquatic environment on behalf of game angling and fisheries. In 2008 S&TA was granted charitable status, and our charitable objectives now empower us to address all issues affecting fish and the aquatic environment. Our policies are evidence led, based on research and advice from a powerful international scientific network. Our charitable objectives enable us to take the widest possible remit in protecting fish stocks, and the aquatic environment in which they live.
