Cromarty Firth Fishery Board staff have been joined on patrol by the local wildlife crime officer for Police Scotland. A foot patrol covering a large stretch of the lower reaches of the River Alness was carried out from the late afternoon to dusk looking for those who may be fishing illegally.
The trust said later: "We are always grateful for the support given to us by Police Scotland in tackling wildlife crime and we will continue the collaborative approach during the season whenever possible."
