The lowest ten miles of the Tay, including prestigious beats like Taymount or Islamouth, provides most of the cream of the Tay.
The largest rod caught salmon in Britain, caught on the Tay by Miss Georgina Ballantine in 1922, weighing 64 pounds (29 kg), retains the British record.
The river is of high biodiversity value and is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) maintaining a flagship population of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar), Freshwater pearl mussel (Margaritifea margaritifera) and native species such as the Eurasian otter (Lutra lutra).
The Tay is internationally renowned for its Atlantic salmon fishing and is one of the best salmon rivers in the United Kingdom, and western Europe, attracting anglers from all over the world.
It is the largest river in the UK by measured discharge.

The River Tay emerges from Loch Tay at Kenmore, and flows from there to Perth which, in historical times, was its lowest bridging point.
Below Perth the river becomes tidal and enters the Firth of Tay.
