Salmon plan will end with all catches returned claim

Plans to halt stocking of Welsh rivers with salmon raised in hatcheries will end with anglers being forced to return their catches, it is being claimed.

Natural Resources Wales is consulting on plans to close three of its own salmon hatcheries in Wales.

But the owner of one of the largest private salmon hatcheries in Wales says the proposal will ultimately lead to a ban on anglers keeping salmon catches.

However, that view has been challenged by others in the industry.
