Abstract: Every year large numbers of salmon fry (parr and smolts) are destroyed, sometimes quite unwittingly, by anglers who are unable to distinguish between salmon fry and young trout. Under Section 73 of the Fisheries (Ireland) Act, 1842, it is illegal to take the fry of either salmon or trout. The term “trout fry” has not yet received a legal interpretation but in some Fishery Districts the taking of immature trout below a certain size is prohibited by by-law. The fry of salmon are legally deemed to include also those fish locally called "jenkin" and "gravelling."
