The stocks of wild Atlantic salmon, a fish abundant within British rivers a generation ago, are in a state of collapse.
In 2018, the last year for which records are available, 37,196 salmon were caught by Scotland’s anglers. That has fallen from over 100,000 a decade ago and is the lowest number since records began in the 1950s.
Just 4,000 of those were taken on the Tay, a river that in the 1980s was producing more than 12,000 each season.
