Clyde Salmon Homecoming conference

On World Fish Migration Day, Saturday 21 May 2016, the Clyde River Foundation is holding a one-day conference at the University of Glasgow entitled ‘Clyde Salmon Homecoming – the Status and Future of Salmon in the River Clyde’.

Confirmed speakers include Dr Colin Bean (SNH), Dr Phil McGinnity (University College Cork), Professor Neil Metcalfe (University of Glasgow), Paul Reid (River Clyde Fisheries Management Trust) and Dr Willie Yeomans (Clyde River Foundation).The Clyde River Foundation is grateful to our conference sponsors which, to date, include the Strathgryfe Angling Association and Mid Clyde Angling Association.
