And what happens if you decided to kill and eat it? Or aren't you allowed to take tagged salmon?

I think you are ment to return the fish and send the tag no (not the tag) to the EA with details of when and where the fish was caught.

Oh yes, I forgot the obvious question. How big was it everyready, and which river and how were you fishing?

Closed season for Salmon this time of year Lid.
As far as I know you note the tag No. & then check with the EA to see if it's relevant to them.
PS They like the weight as well if poss.

Thanks Mike, I wasn't sure about the season dates and was too lazy to try and find the EA web-site, or somewhere else that tells me the them.

Still interested to know the weight, bait and river though.
