Participants at charr week 2008; charr from Loch Braigh Horrisdale (Ben Rushbrooke)

This workshop took place on the 27th November 2008 during Arctic charr discovery week at the Loch Maree Hotel. The workshop considered management priorities for charr populations in north-west Scotland and was attended by some of Scotland's leading charr biologists. One aim of the workshop was to consider action points for charr populations in the area, to be included in forthcoming Fishery Trust Fishery Management Plans.
