Fisheries Management Scotland have produced an advisory note regarding Pacific pink salmon which may make a return to Scottish waters this year.
Please be aware that in Scotland under the Wildlife and Countryside Act 1981, Pink salmon of the species Oncorhynchus gorbuscha are an invasive non-native species. The 1981 Act makes it an offence to fish for and retain Pink salmon (i.e. have one in your possession or under your control).
However, if a pink salmon is caught accidentally whilst fishing legally for other species, although it is technically an offence, a defence of due diligence may be established if it can be shown that best practice was followed.
