Salmon & Trout Association – What we do

When the Salmon & Trout Association was formed in 1903, the principal threat to freshwater and marine habitats came from industrial pollution. The Association began to recruit members and took shape from the concept that, ‘it is necessary for sportsmen, scientists, experts in each branch of fishery care and administration to band themselves together to protect and nurture a natural heritage that civilisation dissipates.’ S&TA became a registered charity in 2008 and is now the only UK fisheries charity that campaigns for the conservation, protection and sustainable management of an aquatic environment capable of supporting an abundance of indigenous fish species, invertebrates, animals and plant life – from source to sea.

 The Wild Trout Trust                http://www.wildtrout.org/

We are a conservation charity that focuses on practical work to improve habitat for trout across the UK and Ireland.  Although we have few staff, we have a big impact because we work with grass roots organisations  (fishing clubs, local community and conservation groups)  and landowners to give them the  inspiration, advice and  practical skills to improve and maintain their lake or river for the benefit of trout and all wildlife.Most of our members, supporters and staff are fishermen, but we are not a fishing organisation.
