A historic Speyside castle with links to angling has pledged support to establish the cause of dwindling salmon numbers in the water.
Gordon Castle in Fochabers has beats on the River Spey with visitors travelling to the location throughout the year to try and catch the fish.
Now the estate has pledged 10% of sales of luxury products in its store to support the Atlantic Salmon Trust’s Missing Salmon Project.
The initiative, which was launched last year, aims to reverse the decline in the fish by establishing what happens to the species at sea and what stops them returning to Speyside.
Angus Gordon Lennox, owner of Gordon Castle, said: “The Missing Salmon Project is vital research to help save this iconic fish.
“Gordon Castle has been at the centre of salmon fishing for centuries and we are thrilled that our products will go some way to help ensure that there are salmon in our rivers for centuries to come.”
Mark Bilsby, chief executive of the Atlantic Salmon Trust, said: “With this help we will continue to follow the salmon as they migrate down from the headwaters and out to sea in the Moray Firth, providing insights to where they are dying, and more importantly, guide us in better looking after them.”
Gordon Castle will pledge 10% of online sales from customers using the code GCSALMON to the trust.
