From records of annual catches of sea trout in Wales, covering 32 major rivers between 2000 and 2009, 25 showed a decline. The largest catches were from the Tywi, Teifi, Dyfi and Mawddach of between 1000 and 4000 fish per year. Over the 10 year period the numbers caught from all four rivers fell by between 8 and 60%. Taking the statistics for all the Welsh rivers together, 8 showed a decline of 60% or more.

The comment on these figures by the editors of the online salmon atlas was:

"This does not make good reading. The lovely clean rivers of Wales should be teeming with sea trout -some are- but they are not what they used to be".
