Salmon & Trout ConservationAcronym: S&TC
We are the UK's only independent charity campaigning nationally to restore 'nature's hatchery' of wild salmon and sea trout.
Salmon and trout are extremely vulnerable in their early freshwater life stages. For ‘nature's hatchery’ to be successful, these young fish need pollution-free water, and plenty of it.
Contribution to the Atlas
Through the Riverfly Census and now SmartRivers, S&TC are using aquatic invertebrates as a diagnostic test, to understand more about the subtle, but significant, water quality pressures stressing juvenile fish. Invertebrates live in the same habitat as fish, so experience the same water quality pressures.
Stressed out fish are poorer quality and less likely to complete their life cycle. Only by prescribing our rivers the right 'treatment', can we reduce this stress and achieve the conditions required to support sustainable populations of wild salmon and trout.
