Ken Whelan was in touch to tell IFI that the Atlantic Salmon Trust (AST) has launched a major initiative entitled The Missing Salmon Project. This in an effort to solve the mystery of the Irish missing salmon.
Somewhere on their journey, wild salmon numbers are being decimated. For every 100 that leave the Irish rivers for the sea, less than five return – a decline of nearly 70 per cent in just 25 years.
Action must be taken on a scale never seen before in order to identify what is happening to wild salmon and determine how to halt this decline.
Ken is giving a talk on the project, hosted by the Buncrana Angling Club, on Friday 10th May at 7pm in the Swan Park, Buncrana, Co. Donegal.
