Catch and release

Have your say

Mr WW Quarry (Letters, 26 March) writes that wild salmon and sea trout are threatened with extinction due to the activities of salmon farmers.

Like many of those purporting to be interested in saving wild salmon, he is badly misinformed about the salmon farming industry.

However, if he is so keen to protect wild salmon then perhaps he would support the introduction of mandatory catch and release for angling.

This would stop the unnecessary deaths of thousands of breeding salmon every year; deaths that are made purely in the name of sport.
