When I posted this salmon, at http://www.ispot.org.uk/node/247775 , it was pointed out, by Peadar na brac & Nightfly, who evidently know what they're talking about (see their remarks)that the 2 slash marks end in holes, & so might be an otter attack, or maybe a seal (ie from their canines). Sadly I didn't get a good fix on the fishes size, but given salmon lice "attain 1 to 3cm",I measured off salmon285b set at "originalsize+" the 2nd fr bottom of the group of 7 lice as 1cm which if = true size makes salmonsize=37+23.5=60.5cm or 23.8 inch; and the canine gap (centre to centre), 1.25in. Sussexotters.org gave gaps of otter=about2in & mink=ab1in. (My hunch the salmon was over 2ft)
