Salmon or Sea Trout (Sewin)

Identifying characteristics of the Salmon and Sewin

Salmon or Sea Trout (Sewin)

It is an offence to take a Salmon from the Teifi before the 16th of June. The TTA would hate to see any angler being prosecuted, particularly if the reason was due to being unable to differentiate between a Salmon or a big Sewin. If you do have any doubt then you must return the fish. We hope the following information will be helpful to you in the future.
