Scope and Content

Partly typewritten and printed, partly autograph correspondence and papers relating to work done by Hughes and others who were concerned about the reduction in the number of Atlantic salmon, which Hughes felt was due to 'high seas fishery and the big physical changes in the North Atlantic'. Material consists of letters sent about a public inquiry into the rivers, Taw and Torridge; statistics, diagrams and drafts of a document entitled 'Net Limitation Order and Byelaw Proposals for the Rivers Taw and Torridge Proof of Evidence' written by Hughes. Supporting documents written by Charles Inniss, Humphrey Wood, Nigel Reader, Robert Harwood and Stuart Bray are also included.


Correspondence within the folder is arranged chronologically at the beginning of Add MS 88918/121/6. Draft papers and notes can be found in all the folders, Add MS 88918/121/6-8.
