The ERFT is a Limited Company first registered in 2006 with charitable status granted in 2007. We became operational in May 2008 with the appointment of Dr Marshall M Halliday as the Trust Director under the Chairmanship of Tom Sampson.
The EDSFB is the statutory body with responsibility for the management of salmon and sea trout stocks in the Rivers North and South Esk.
The work of the Trust depends on its ability to raise funds to fulfil its aims and objectives for the rivers within the Esk District. There are a number of funding opportunities for some projects which the Trust have initiated. However, we require funds to develop our work and hope that anglers will support the work of the Trust. It will be largely through your support that we will be able to ensure that the rivers within the District are developed to the highest sustainable standards.
