Salmon Kelts ( Spent / Spawned Fish )
The fishery officers are checking that all salmon kelts must be recorded on your log book so i am just letting all salmon anglers know they need to record the kelts or a fine will be imposed on those that don't record kelts. I myself have recorded all my kelts and now need new log books for all the kelts that i will catch in the coming weeks. This means that most anglers will be recording the same fish more than once and this is going to give a totally inaccurate figure in the coming year on the stocks of wild salmon especially as there is no seperation between kelt and fresh salmon on the log book. If anyone has information as to why this is happening this year please let me know so i can inform all the salmon anglers.
