  • Foundation Scotland - Wild Salmonid Support Fund

    Created: 09/02/2022

    The Wild Salmonid Support Fund has been established to prioritise the investments of the salmon farming sector in Scotland aimed at tackling the decline of wild salmon and sea trout in Scottish rivers. The fund is a 5-year programme that will see £1.5 million invested by the Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation (SSPO) to support the status of wild salmon and sea trout stocks in Scottish rivers and enhance wild fisheries.

    The fund will invest in projects which benefit wild salmon and sea trout stocks in Scottish rivers and enhance wild fisheries in the shared connected waters where the salmon farming sector operates.

    Projects of the following (practical) nature are priorities for this programme:

    • Practical projects which meet the objective of enhancing wild fisheries habitats.
    • Innovative projects that allow aquaculture technology and wild fish sector expertise to be deployed for wild salmonid development.
    • Quantifying hazards and securing the ability to measure potential impacts better.

    The fund will support the delivery of capital and feasibility work linked to successful projects.

    Who can apply?

    The programme is open to applications covering rivers in the space shared between the salmon farming sector and wild fisheries.

    When to apply?

    This round of funding will close on 21 March 2022. Decisions will be announced on 23 May 2022.

    How to apply?
