Guide to reporting red skin disease

Fishery and environmental organisations have taken steps to standardise clinical reporting of red skin disease (RSD) in salmon.

With the help of NDSFB river director Brian Shaw, IAC interim secretary James Emery has placed copies of the guide (Red Skin Disease in wild Atlantic salmon — a severity field guide) in club huts.

The guide will support ongoing monitoring of RSD across salmon rivers. It will also serve to distinguish this emerging condition from other, frequently observed skin lesions in migratory salmonids.
