Explanatory Note

The annual close time of the River Dee (Aberdeenshire) salmon fishery district is 27th August to 10th February. Section 37 of the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 2003 prohibits all modes of fishing for and taking salmon in a salmon fishery district during the annual close time. The exception to this is where provision has been made for periods within the annual close time during which fishing for and taking salmon by rod and line is permitted.

This Order prescribes the periods when rod and line fishing for salmon is permitted during the annual close time in the part of the district comprising the River Dee. The periods are 27th August to 15th October and 1st February to 10th February, all dates inclusive.

The Order ceases to have effect on 16th October 2011.
