From the Atlantic Salmon Trust:

The Esk District Fishery Board announced today that the Usan Nets have agreed not to kill sea trout during the 2011 season. We understand that compensation is due to be paid. This conservation measure recognises that the full potential value of South Esk sea trout can only be realised if these fish are allowed unobstructed passage to the river. It is important that, in the spirit of this most welcome decision of the Pullar family to conserve sea trout, anglers show constraint by restricting the numbers of sea trout killed. There are signs that sea trout stocks are starting to improve, and this measure will ensure that every chance is given for that trend to continue.
