Salmon Conservation Fund Contributors Scheme Open To Submissions

5th December 2013
Salmon Conservation Fund Contributors Scheme Open To Submissions

#SalmonFund - Angling clubs, commercial fishermen, fishery owners, riparian owners and landowners with an interest in a salmon fishery are invited to submit projects to the Salmon Conservation Fund 2013/14 Contributors Scheme.

An initial fund of €200,000 is available in 2014 for distribution to contributors. Approved project applications may be fully or partly funded. It is envisaged that the fund will be divided between a range of contributors to a guide of €15,000 per project.

The list of what can be funded under the scheme includes:

  • Fish passage improvement (eg removal of barriers, modification of weirs, and construction of fish passes, etc)
  • Spawning enhancement (addition/raking of gravel or cleaning of existing substrates)
  • Instream structures (weirs, deflectors, rubble mats, random boulders, etc)
  • River bank protection (rock armour, log revetment etc)
  • Fencing (protection of river banks including fences, stiles, cattle drinks, etc)
  • Riparian zone improvement (tree pruning and strategic tree planting)
  • Removal and control of exotic invasives (eg Rhododendron, Japanese knotweed, Asian clam, chub, etc)
  • Feasibility studies (that lead to future projects under the above headings to maximum of 50% funding or €2,000, whichever is less; a maximum of five 5 studies only to be allowed)

For further details on the scheme, how to apply, an application form and more see HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
