Default Gaula River Trust has agreed new fishing regulations for 2013.

Lowers quota for salmon on Gaula

Gaula River Trust has agreed new fishing regulations for 2013.

Season quota will remain at eight fish but quotas for fish over 80 centimetres are reduced from four to three. In addition, hen salmon will be fully protected in July and August.

- The reason that hen fish are not protected in June, is that the majority of fishermen will have difficulty seeing the difference between the sexes so early in the season, says Torstein Rognes, Secretary of the Gaula River Trust.

Last year the Trust agreed to protect hen salmon from August to end of season. The reason for the decision was a very marked decline in the fishery coupled with a poor assessment basis in terms of how many fish it was prudent to take out.

In addition to the specific changes in the regulations, there will also be changes in the management system.

- It will be an implementation of a sharp increase in surveillance which will be tripled, says Rognes.

There will also be tighter reporting system.

- Not only because of the 2012 season was special, but also underlying changes. There are many elements that makes it like it is, says Rognes.

In November a count of spawning redds, using helicopters, showed 80 compared to 325 the previous year. This is the lowest number in 20 years.
- We had a similar result in 1993, when we experienced a significant decline in the salmon fishery four years later, said Rognes to Trønder magazine earlier.

In 2012 it was 40,300 kilo salmon caught, compared to 37,000 kilo in 2011.
