What we do
Our vision at Salmon & Trout Conservation is a sustainable water environment which supports an abundance of wild fish.

Who we are
We have been defending salmon & trout in the UK since 1903, but our campaigns have never been more urgent or so important.
We have evolved over 115 years into a leading conservation charity - the only one in the UK campaigning specifically for wild fish. Find out more about our heritage, our beliefs, who we work with, and how we operate.
We are independent and receive no government money. Without generous supporters we would not exist.
There are a range of ways individuals and businesses can get involved in the on-going protection of the UK's wild fish. Find out more about why we need your support more than ever and the many ways you can help.
Open-net pen salmon farming is devastating wild fish stocks and harming the environment in Scotland.
Sea lice, disease and many more issues plague salmon farming. We have secured TWO parliamentary inquiries and continue to push for much needed legislative change.
Only 14% of rivers in England have 'good' ecological status, with water quality and quantity declining rapidly.
We lead the fight to protect wild fish habitats from the many threats they face; including sewage, agricultural pollution, micro-plastics, abstraction and, sadly, much more.
Riverfly insects have declined 59% since 1970, indicating poor water quality & an unstable food chain.
We survey riverfly insects nationwide to understand what’s really happening beneath the surface, using the data to campaign for better protection of our wild fish.
