The Loughs Agency has issued advice for any anglers in the Foyle and Carlingford catchments who have made unusual catches in recent weeks.

Those who suspect they have caught an escaped farmed Atlantic salmon, escaped farmed Rainbow trout, escaped farmed brown trout, non-native pink salmon or fish displaying external or internal signs of disease are directed to follow the advice below:

  • Please report to DAERA Inland Fisheries at [email protected] or the Loughs Agency at [email protected]
  • If possible take a picture prior to release and attach this to any report.
  • Do not dispatch fish unless in line with current fisheries regulations and bag limits.

DAERA Inland Fisheries and the Loughs Agency will monitor reports and develop further advice if required.

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.
