There have been several sightings of diseased fish since angling resumed on the Nairn.

If you see a diseased fish do not disturb or stress it in any way. Fish can recover and go on to spawn but you reduce their chances of success if you stress them.

You can help by photographing the fish, recording the grid reference of where you saw it and reporting this information by email to: who will forward it to our Nairn collator for reporting to the Fish Health Authority Scotland.

Examples of diseased fish seen recently and reported up to 2nd June are attached below, but be warned they are not a pretty sight!

You can obtain the grid reference you need using the free app "OS Locate".


If you see a mink or its tracks please let us know by contacting:
