1.       Introduction

The Tripartite Working Group was established in 1999, with the Scottish Executive and
Rural Affairs Department as chair, and includes members from both the salmon farming
industry (Scottish Salmon Producers Association) and the wild fisheries industry (Atlantic
Salmon Trust, Scottish Anglers National Association, Association of Salmon Fisheries
Board and Rivers and Fisheries Trusts of Scotland). The purpose of the group is to
‘address problems common to salmon farming and wild salmon fisheries and to seek
solutions for ensuring the maintenance of a healthy stock of wild fish whilst at the same
time promoting a sustainable aquaculture industry’.

In order to facilitate these objectives at a local level, Area Management Agreements
(AMAs) were established in 2000, between salmon farming companies and wild farming
interests.

The Firth of Clyde AMA aims to; promote and implement measures for the maintenance
of healthy stocks of wild and farmed fish within the defined area, promote restoration of
wild salmon and sea trout stocks within the defined area and develop a fuller
understanding of wild salmon stocks and factors influencing their distribution and
prevalence/ abundance.

1.2.    Geographical area
The Firth of Clyde AMA encompasses two geographical areas; Loch Fyne and the Kyles
of Bute (Figure 1). The AMA contains the whole of Loch Fyne (from the head of the loch
to the mouth between Skipness Point and Ardlamont Point), and all the river catchments
entering Loch Fyne. The Kyles of Bute area is defined as the marine waters north of a

Bruchag Point to Cloch Point and from Cloch Point to Baron’s Point (to the east).

2. Wild fisheries
2.1.   Description of main migratory salmonid systems in the Firth of Clyde AMA
There are four primary rivers flowing into Loch Fyne; the Fyne, Aray, Shira and Kinglas,
and two within the Kyles of Bute; the Ruel and Eachaig.

Loch Fyne Rivers
The River Fyne has the largest river catchment in the Loch Fyne area, draining over
80km2 of hill ground. The river flows for 20km and has access for migratory salmonids
for much of the main channel length (16.6km) – the main river and accessible tributaries
provide a total wet area of stream accessible to migratory fish of 232,500m2 (AFT FMP
2008). The River Fyne catchment area is used for livestock grazing, forestry, hydro-
electric operations, brewing and aggregate abstraction. There are a number of
obstacles (both man-made and natural), on the River Fyne, both on the mainstem and
the tributaries.

The River Aray is a relatively large spate-fed river, with a catchment of approximately
61km2. The river flows for 10km through areas used for hill-farming, broadleaf woodland
and commercial forestry, to enter Loch Fyne at Inveraray. In recent years, numbers of
sea trout caught by rod and line have begun to improve, although salmon numbers
continue to be poor.

The River Shira is a relatively large spate-fed river which flows for 12km before entering
Loch Fyne north of Inveraray. There are a number of hydro-electric dams in the upper
catchment, which supply the power generating station at Lochan Shira. The Shira
catchment includes the Glen Shira Special Area of Conservation which is designated for
its western acidic oak woodlands.

The River Kinglas drains a moderately sized catchment on the eastern shores of Loch
Fyne. Recent planting of native deciduous woods has been undertaken in the upper
catchment. Water from the Kinglas is abstracted both for hydro-electric generation and
for fish farming. As with the other Loch Fyne rivers, the Kinglas historically supported
good salmon and sea trout fisheries, however is now operating well below its natural
carrying capacity for juvenile salmon.

Kyles of Bute rivers
The River Ruel contains approximately 16km (186,000km2) of river which is accessible
to migratory salmonids. Historically there have been numerous man-made pressures on
this watercourse including; long-term grazing leading to loss of bankside cover,
straightening of sections of the main channel, clear felling of commercial forest
plantation and the installation of obstacles to migration.

The River Eachaig drains a relatively large catchment area of 142km2 and runs 6km
from the outflow of Loch Eck to the Holy Loch. Land use within the catchment is a
mixture of hill-farming, broadleaf woodland and commercial forestry. Traditionally this
river was known to support healthy salmon and sea trout populations (although it is
primarily recognized as a sea trout fishery) and a prosperous rod fishery.

The fishing rights are owned by the following: River Fyne – Achadunan and Ardkinglas
Estates; Rivers Aray and Shira – Argyll Estates; River Kinglas – Ardkinglas and Strone
Estates; River Ruel – various owners (managed by Ruel RIA); River Eachaig -
syndicate.

2.2.   Catch data for Firth of Clyde AMA
Figure 2, 4 and 5 are compiled from catch statistics which are submitted to FRS
Montrose annually.

River Fyne
Marine Scotland catch data from the Loch Fyne district indicates a significant decline
from 1952-2008, as has been seen over most of the west coast of Scotland. The fishing
effort (primarily netting and rod & line) has declined dramatically over recent years,
making it more difficult to gain an accurate picture of current salmonid catches in the
loch.

2.5.  Fish farm escapees
Farmed fish were caught in 2006 in both the Rivers Ruel (6 salmon) and Eachaig (4
salmon). No further farmed fish have been reported from these rivers.

There have been a small number of farmed salmon caught in the River Fyne in 2009.

2.6.     Statutory and non statutory conservation/ management policies e.g.
seasons/ methods/ C&R
Despite the low number of salmon and sea trout stocks recorded within the Loch Fyne
District, salmon catches remained at nearly 100% retention rate until 2004 when catch
and release was implemented in the area. The Loch Fyne DSFB has now ceased
commercial letting of rod fishing and to date only a restricted amount of angling occurs
on a catch and release basis on Rivers Fyne, Aray and Shira. Some sea trout are still
retained, although at a reduced percentage. Some rivers such as the River Fyne have
been operating on a full catch and release policy and this river has been closed with the
exception of private fishing for the last 11 years. Currently there is very little angling
activity in the area on conservation grounds, and only fly fishing is permitted on the Fyne
rivers.


TWG Firth of Clyde AMA Report                                                  6                                      Updated 14th January 2010
There is an on-going programme of natural woodland regeneration on the River Fyne,
managed by Achadunan Estate and Argyll Fisheries Trust.

On the River Ruel, there is a catch limit imposed by the Dunoon and District Angling
Club – the club allows the first salmon and first two sea trout to be kept, then subsequent
fish must be returned. They also recommend returning coloured and hen salmon and
sea trout, and the use of barbless hooks.

There are bailiffs on the Fyne rivers, and also the Ruel.

2.7.     Indication of, including links, to any Fisheries Management Plans for these
catchments
Fishery Management Plans (FMPs) have been developed for the Rivers Fyne, Aray and
Shira in conjunction with the Upper Loch Fyne Rivers Restoration Plan for Atlantic
Salmon (prepared 2005). Against the backdrop of declining fish stocks in the upper
Loch Fyne rivers, the plan covers the largest 6 rivers in upper Loch Fyne and aims to set
out a common strategic approach for the management and restoration of salmon
populations in these rivers in the period 2005 – 2010. To date various actions have
been undertaken including; research and monitoring of fish populations, habitat
accessibility and quality, stocking, general fishery management and implementing AMA
initiatives to improve local marine survival.

A damaged fish pass on a weir on the River Kinglas has recently been repaired and this
obstacle is now passable to migratory salmonids.

The Argyll Fisheries Trust has also developed a Fisheries Biosecurity Plan for Argyll and
the Islands, as part of a national action plan. The plan aims to ‘establish a sustainable
framework that will lead to the prevention, detection, control and eradication of invasive
non-native species within the Argyll region’ -
http://www.argyllfisheriestrust.co.uk/pdfs/draftbiosecuritymanagementplan.pdf

2.8.    Reports of any research/ monitoring projects currently being conducted in
catchments within the AMA area
The Argyll Fisheries Trust currently surveys juvenile salmonid populations on all of the
Upper Loch Fyne rivers. In 2009 post-smolt sea trout caught in the Firth of Clyde netting
project were also tagged by the Argyll Fisheries Trust, in order to provide information on
fish movements.

As part of the FASMOP project fin clips are taken from juvenile salmon and trout during
electro-fishing, and sea trout during post-smolt netting, in order to undertake DNA
analysis and establish if salmonids form discrete breeding populations within the Fyne
rivers and the South Argyll rivers.

2.9.    Details of any stocking in each catchment
The Argyll Fisheries Trust and Argyll Estates operate a hatchery for the upper Loch Fyne
rivers. An extensive stocking programme has been undertaken throughout the upper
Loch Fyne catchment historically, details of which are provided below.

In 2004, a supportive breeding programme for River Ruel stock was set-up at the
Inverness College’s Seafield Centre for salmon to provide a regular source of juveniles
of River Ruel origin (AFT River Ruel Report 2008).

It is understood that no stocking of salmon or trout has been undertaken in the Eachaig
catchment.

2.10. Details of any fish health management policies e.g. GS/ fish movements
GS information boards have been distributed by the Argyll DSFB to river proprietors
throughout the region and displayed in prominent locations. The AFT have also visited a
number of wild hatcheries advising on the biosecurity measures which should be
considered in such operations.


3. Fish Farming Section

3.1.    A general description of the overall lice/ fish health management strategy
in the area
All Lighthouse Caledonia sites sample lice twice per week at temperatures over 10oC
and once per week at temperatures under 10oC. The strategy consists of whole area
fallowing and synchronous lice treatments using a combination of chemicals available in

TWG Firth of Clyde AMA Report                   8                        Updated 14th January 2010
          a manner that will minimize lice resistance. One of the key objectives of the AMA is to
          minimize lice loadings on wild fish during the smolt run, approximately February to June
          - in order to achieve this, the salmon farmers in the Firth of Clyde AMA work towards a
          target of zero ovigerous (egg-bearing) lice during this period.

          TWG Firth of Clyde AMA Report                   9                          Updated 14th January 2010
3.3.    Graphical description of lice trends over the last cycle
All farms in the Firth of Clyde AMA are signatories to the industry’s Code of Good
Practice for Finfish Aquaculture. This covers all aspects of finfish good practice
including; consumer reassurance, fish health, protecting the environment, welfare and
husbandry, feed and feeding, National Sea Lice Treatment Strategy, Integrated Sea Lice
Management, containment and a Veterinary Health Plan. The National Sea Lice
Treatment Strategy contains detailed information on how monitoring should be
undertaken and suggested treatment trigger levels (an average of 0.5 adult female
L.salmonis per fish between February and June, and an average of 1 adult female
L.salmonis per fish between July and January). However, as signatories to the AMA,
marine salmon farms in the Firth of Clyde AMA work to a target of 0.5 ovigerous lice
between February and June, and the lowest possible level of ovigerous lice at all other
times. A strategic sea lice treatment was administered on the Loch Fyne and Kyles of
Bute sites in spring 2009.

The graphs below show the monthly average lice counts within the two production areas
in the AMA, Loch Fyne and Kyles of Bute.




  Figure 7: Loch Fyne monthly average lice counts. (Fallow December 2007/ January 2008, all
                          sites re-stocked with fish by June 2008).

3.4.    Details of specific actions that have been taken by fish-farmers in response
to AMA discussions e.g. strategic lice treatments prior to smolt runs
Lighthouse Caledonia relocated three sites away from the head of Loch Fyne and
redistributed their tonnage amongst sites in the lower loch; this was part of a production
strategy to reduce the number of fish being grown at the head of the loch system, where
it is thought to have the most impact to the wild fisheries. There are no further
relocations currently planned in this area.


3.5.      Record of escapes

3.6.    Containment policies and mitigation measures
All farms in the AMA area adhere to the CoGP guidance on containment. After the
escape incident at Strone in August 2009, Lighthouse Caledonia replaced the weighting
system, which had been supplied by the previous owners of the site, with the type used
at other Lighthouse Caledonia sites.

3.7.   Fish health management issues
There are no fish health management issues at any of the sites within the Firth of Clyde
AMA.

3.8.    Indication that Companies involved have signed up to the industry CoGP
All Lighthouse Caledonia sites are signed up to the CoGP – each site is audited annually
and only if compliant will accreditation be issued.
