Welcome

The aim of the Galloway Fisheries Trust is to restore and maintain aquatic biodiversity, particularly native fish, in Galloway by means of practical, responsible and sustainable approaches to land, water and fishery management, based on sound science, for the benefit of the community as a whole.

The Galloway Fisheries Trust is an environmental charity which was set up in 1988 by four local District Salmon Fisheries Boards in the South West of Scotland with common problems and aims.

Since then the Trust has gone from strength to strength, now working across most of Dumfries and Galloway's rivers and still waters including the Border Esk.

The core river catchments on which we carry out the majority of our work are: the River Luce, River Bladnoch, River Cree, Water of Fleet, Kirkcudbrightshire Dee, River Urr, Water of App, Piltanton Burn and the Border Esk.

The aims of our remit are met by undertaking practical works, education initiatives, focussed research projects and delivering key services to member waters and the wider community.
