About Us

The Lossie District Salmon Fishery Board was established under the 1860’s Salmon Fisheries legislation as subsequently amended and stated in the Salmon Act 1986 and the Salmon Conservation (Scotland) Act 2001. This legislation has recently been streamlined into the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 2003. It is empowered under the legislation to take such acts as considered expedient for the protection, enhancement and conservation of Atlantic salmon and sea trout stocks and fisheries.

Key duties for the LDFSB are to:

  1. provide fisheries protection (salmon and sea-trout),
  2. set salmon and sea trout rod fishery seasons,
  3. set weekly rod fishery close times (midnight Saturday – midnight Sunday),
  4. police the purchase and sale of illegally-caught or unseasonable fish,
  5. ensure fish passage over obstructions to migration,
  6. protect juvenile fish and spawning redds,
  7. regulate the movement and introduction of adults, juveniles and ova.

The Lossie DSFB works closely with proprietors, the Elgin & District Angling Association, the Dallas Angling Association  and the Findhorn, Nairn and Lossie Fisheries Trust to perform these duties.
