Fish pass approved

Posted at 08/08/2012 | By : | Categories : News / Blog | Comments Off on Fish pass approved

Our fish pass application has now been approved by the Environment Agency. This will help salmon and trout get past the weir as they migrate to their breeding areas upstream. The river used to be completely dead from industrial pollution but has been cleaned up in recent years. Fish are now getting higher up the river to the whole of the Calder Basin (See Calder Basin map) and the fish pass will contribute to enhancing fish stocks.

The fish pass has been designed in conjunction with the Environment Agency to the highest national standards.
