Armadale Tracking Project - Tags Wanted!

Marine Scotland is tracking salmon from July 2017 and would like your help.

Armadale Tracking Project - Tags Wanted!

If you catch a salmon with a tag (as shown in the attached photograph) near the dorsal fin, then please remove it by cutting through the plastic cord to remove the acoustic tag (black cylinder). Please note that the colour of the cord may vary from yellow.

Please send the acoustic tag, also with a note of day and location of capture, to:

Armadale Tracking,

Freshwater Fisheries Laboratory,



PH16 5LB

Please enclose your name, postal and email (if applicable) address and we will send you £20 in reward.

If you have any other information about the fish (eg a photo, length, sex) then please include it when you send in the tag. However, please do not delay the safe return of the fish to the water to obtain any such information.

With thanks,

The Armadale Tracking Team
