Galloway Fisheries Trust (GFT), formerly West Galloway Fisheries Trust, was the first fisheries trust to be established within Scotland. The Charitable Trust was launched in 1989 by four District Salmon Fishery Boards (DSFBs) in southwest Scotland, with a remit to ad- minister the Rivers Luce, Blad- noch, Cree and Fleet.

Rivers which today fall within the area administered by the Trust now also include most of those situated on the Scot- tish side of the Solway Firth (Border Esk, Annan, Kirkcud- brightshire Dee and Urr) and the GFT works closely with these DSFBs and their environmental managers. The Trust is also actively involved in the manage- ment of many of the region’s still waters.

As the Trust’s responsibilities have changed, it has expanded from serving only the interests of salmon and now actively works to conserve all of the fish populations in Dumfries and Galloway, including coarse fish populations.

The aim of the GFT is to restore and maintain aquatic biodiversity in Dumfries and Galloway by means of practical, responsible and sustainable approaches to land, water and fishery manage- ment, based on sound science, for the benefit of the community as a whole.

If you are interested in becoming a member, please contact the Trust using the details below.
