Over the next 3 years we will:

  • improve the habitat of the river for freshwater mussels and their host fish
  • reduce the level of erosion where it is excessive and delivering high amounts of fine sediment into the river
  • reintroduce juvenile mussels from the Freshwater Biological Association if suitable areas are identified
  • gain a better understanding of existing fish and mussel populations through surveying

We will be doing this by working with farmers, landowners, partner organisations and volunteers.

Some examples of our work are pictured below
