About us

The Moray Firth Trout Initiative (MFTI) is a collaborative project formed by local Fishery Trusts from around the Moray Firth to conserve local wild trout populations. The  MFTI has employed a manager, Marcus Walters, to deliver the the project which is administered by the Kyle of Sutherland Fisheries Trust.  The manager will be supervised by a management committee formed from the participating Trusts who will meet quarterly while a progress report will be produced annually. The project Manager will work closely with local Trusts, District Salmon Fishery Boards and Angling Associations to deliver the project aims.

Funding

The MFTI is 57% funded by cash and in kind contributions from the 5 local Fisheries Trusts and ten District Salmon Fishery Boards (DSFBs). The majority of the remainder will be made up from a £57k grant over 3 years from the Heritage Lottery fund “Your Heritage” alongside support from Highland Council, Scottish and Southern Energy, Nineveh Charitable Trust and the Ernest Cook Charitable Trust. This will be augmented by auction lots donated annually to the Wild Trout Trust Auction by the local participating Angling Associations.
