Projects

The Outer Hebrides Fisheries Trust is involved in a wide variety of ongoing projects, encompassing Fisheries Management, Angling Promotion and Aquaculture. Fisheries Management projects incorporate electrofishing and habitat surveys, genetic analysis, biosecurity planning and education. Angling promotion projects include youth and community angling events, acting as the focal point for angling tourism (Fish Hebrides website) and the Catch & Release competition. Aquaculture projects include post smolt surveys on behalf of RAFTS, which monitor sea lice burdens on wild sea trout, and attendance at AMA meetings.
