Provisional Catch Return Results

Hi All,

Just had the EA provisional catch return results through. These figures are provisional and based on 90% of the returns in the EA database, in addition no data quality checking has been done yet. See below

You will need to add the two sets of figs to get a total for Clwyd catchment. C&R rates looking very good indeed(about 75% for salmon and 85% for sea trout).

Well down on 2010 and it looks to have been a poor grilse year (repeated in other regions and countries), but generally a better MSW year so the average weights are up which means the egg deposition figures won’t be quite as bad as the numbers would suggest (but it’s a concern the grilse were scarce particularly as 2010 was a really good grilse year.

· Elwy Salmon 74 caught 56 released (2 to 16lb)

· Elwy Sea trout 267caught 233 released (14 oz to 6lb)

· Clwyd Salmon 29 caught 22 released (2.5 to 15lb)

· Clwyd Sea trout 458 caught 382 released (14oz to 10lb)

Actual results should be out next month.
