Diving under the surface this week, we welcome Mark Bilsby, CEO of the Atlantic Salmon Trust, and Will Peake, a ghillie on the river Dee on onto the show. Most of our conversations centre around Atlantic Salmon and the issues surrounding the marked decline in populations in the last hundred years. From the historical context to the latest technological advances, we chat about the importance of Salmon as a species, what is being done to understand the decline, and identify the missing pieces of the puzzle when it comes to Salmon returning to our rivers. Of international importance, the consequences of failure to save the species could be unimaginable.
