[/FONT]​
In this Byelaw unless the context otherwise requires :-
"Salmon" means salmon of the species [FONT=Times New Roman,Times New Roman][FONT=Times New Roman,Times New Roman]Salmo salar, [/FONT][/FONT]including part of any such fish.

"Migratory trout" means trout of the species [FONT=Times New Roman,Times New Roman][FONT=Times New Roman,Times New Roman]Salmo trutta [/FONT][/FONT]which migrate to and from the sea, including part of any such fish.

"Sell" and "sale" include barter or exchange for goods or services.

"Upper Esk" has the same meaning as assigned to it in the Scotland Act 1998 (Border Rivers) Order 1999.
