Nominations open for Salmon Conservation Award


The SGA Fishing Group has announced a brand new award for Scotland, as iconic wild salmon face an uncertain future

Scotland's first salmon conservation award has been introduced by ghillies from the SGA Fishing Group

Against the backdrop of record low rod catches and the species being classified as endangered in the UK for the first time, the SGA Wild Salmon Conservation Award will recognise individuals or groups who are taking action to conserve wild salmon stocks.


Up and down the country, ghillies and others are undertaking local actions to help boost salmon stocks, whether that be managing invasive species, evolving hatchery best practice or restoring key river habitats.


It’s now time to nominate for the inaugural award, which will be presented at Moy Country Fair on Friday August 2nd.


People taking action


If there is an individual or group you feel deserves recognition for their work to increase salmon stocks, you can nominate by contacting the SGA Office by mail or email


Tell us who the individual/individuals are and why you feel they are deserving. The entries will then be judged by the SGA Fishing Group members who, between them, have centuries of knowledge managing rivers. If more information is needed, it will be sought, so please leave contact details with your nomination.


The award is open for nominations to ghillies, beats, estates, angling clubs, boards and individuals with a good understanding of the actions they feel are deserving of recognition.
