The Nairn District Salmon Fishery Board is a statutory body, made up of elected River Nairn proprietors and co-opted representatives.

The Board employs a Bailiff. 

Meetings are held three times a year to discuss salmonid management in the River Nairn catchment and to direct the activities of the Clerk and Bailiff. 

Under the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries (Consolidation) (Scotland) Act 2003, the Board is responsible for the protection and management of salmonids in the Nairn and its tributaries. As the Nairn is in the fortunate position of being a healthy river with reasonable fish stocks, the Board focusses on protecting and enhancing the fish stocks. 

The Board funds itself through an annual levy on proprietors.
