Default Dr. Derek Mills

Issued by the Atlantic Salmon Trust



It was with great sadness that we learned last week of the death of Dr. Derek Mills on the 29th January 2018.

Derek was a former HSAP, Council Member and Chairman of the Atlantic Salmon Trust. He was author of the book “Saving Scotland’s Salmon” published in 2009 and of a book on the history of the Atlantic Salmon Trust, “Salmon in Trust” published in 2014.

The funeral will take place on the 6th February at 11am at the Borders Crematorium.



DEREK MILLS

Derek has been involved with salmon since 1953 as a scientist, university teacher, consultant and administrator. He was in charge of the Salmon Research Laboratory in Contin under the direction of the Freshwater Fisheries Laboratory in Pitlochry for a number of years before being appointed a senior lecturer and fellow in the Institute of Ecology and Resource Management at the University of Edinburgh. During his thirty years at the University he held a number of extra-mural appointments. He served as consultant biologist to the Scottish Branch of the Salmon and Trout Association; fishery adviser to the North of Scotland Hydro-electric Board (and then Scottish Hydro-electric), he was fishery consultant to Central Scotland Water Board, Fife and Kinross Water Board and Grampian Regional Council. He set up the Scottish branch of the Institute of Fisheries Management and was its first chairman. He was also a committee member of the Tweed River Purification* Board, the South-East Regional Board of the Nature Conservancy Council Scotland and Scottish Natural Heritage, the Scientific Advisory Committee of Scottish Natural Heritage and a trustee of the Tweed Foundation and Cromarty Firth Fisheries Trust.

His work as a fisheries consultant also took him south of the border and he was Consultant to the Welsh National Water Development Board and the Wye River Authority working on the proposed Craig Goch Reservoir Scheme.

He was editor of Blackwell’s journals*Fisheries Management*(1974 – 84) and*Journal of Aquaculture and Fisheries Management(1985 – 93), and on the Editorial Board of Elsevier’s journal*Fisheries Research.
