Pink return?

 The skeletal remains of what is thought to be a pink or humpback salmon were found on the gravel at the top of the Little Isle Pool of the River Ness today (June 9). It was probably the victim of an otter.

The discovery was made by club member James Emery who alerted the Ness District Salmon Fishery Board. Officials will test the remains to confirm its species.

Pinks were discovered on the Ness and a number of other Scottish rivers two years ago. It is thought that this year could see a return of the species, completing a two-year cycle.
