Proposals to introduce rod licences and a new wild fisheries levy in Scotland will no longer be taken forward. In addition proposals to overhaul the restructure and remit of District Salmon Fishery Boards will not go-ahead, instead Scottish Government will encourage the piloting of voluntary board mergers.
