Join us for some fascinating and free lectures on the evening of the 15th of August from the Buckland foundation. Speakers Dr Ronald Campbell and Dr John Armstrong will detail the incredible history of the interplay between the scientific understanding of the day and the developing management for the protection and promotion of Atlantic salmon. These talks will cover a huge variety from the first legislation in the Middle Ages to the application of advanced electronic, genetic and computing tools in the modern world.
The history of salmon management in the British Isles – and how the scientific knowledge of the day has informed (and mis-informed) it. Dr Ronald Campbell has pursued a long career in management of Atlantic salmon for the River Tweed Foundation and is currently a member of the Hon. Scientific Advisory Panel of the Atlantic Salmon Trust and of the Spey Fisheries Board Scientific Committee
