Inland Fisheries Ireland is issuing an alert for reports of any sightings of Pacific pink salmon.

 At the recent NASCO meeting, serious concerns were raised that pink salmon may spread to and establish in rivers throughout the wider Atlantic region.

 IFI is appealing to anglers to report catches of pink salmon to the 24-hour confidential hotline number – 0818 34 74 24 or 0818 FISH 24. As these fish die after spawning, some dead specimens could also be encountered along Irish rivers. Anyone who catches a pink salmon is asked to:

 Keep the fish and do not release it back into the water (even in rivers only open for catch and release angling)

Record the date & location of capture, and the length and weight of the fish

Report it to any IFI office or via the 24-hour confidential hotline number – 0818 34 74 24 or 0818 FISH 24

Tag the fish and present it to Inland Fisheries Ireland and a new tag will be issued to replace the tag used

Take a photograph of the fish.
