The purpose of the initiative is to raise the awareness of the value of wild fish species as indicators of the quality of our rivers and the contribution that they make to the economy through angling related tourism.


Three AMs who have volunteered to act as ambassadors attended the event. These were Ken Skates, Elin Jones and Kirsty Williams who are acting as ambassadors for salmon, sea trout and brown trout respectively. The three Ambassadors will be supported by technical specialists who will provide them with up to date information on the factors affecting stocks of fish and what needs to be done to ensure that they survive and flourish.
