Update to Pink Salmon and Red Skin Disease

As we are in an odd-numbered year, Pink Salmon may once again make an appearance across Scottish rivers.

In addition, last year saw widespread outbreaks of Red Skin Disease (RSD) across Scotland with high fish mortality in some rivers during June. RSD typically appears as red spots or rash on the belly of the fish in its early stages, developing severe ulceration and fungal infection as it spreads, resulting in the death of the fish.

Please report any sighting of Pink Salmon or Red skin disease to the Board immediately.
