Angling Trust regional chair Kelvin Allen presented his story at the recent "The Reasons" event held in Peterborough Museum on the 1st Dec.

This forms part of the NERC funded DRY project which looks at dilemmas around drought and water scarcity.

Kelvin presented the case on water needs and balances, which ended with two questions given the major expansion in both managed wetlands and housing in the Cambridgeshire Fens.

Where is all the water coming from? and is there any water left for the Environment? His presentation is available below as an attachment.

Aim 1 - To improve fish stocks in agreed areas of the Wensum, which are open and accessible to Anglers, to a level that offers Anglers the opportunity for improved sport

Objectives-

To identify specific stretches currently available and decide species where population increase would benefit Anglers.

To decide whether habitat /weed/invertebrate populations in those stretches is suitable for species suggested.

Establish by netting; electro fishing; catch records etc. current fish populations Undertake a stocking programme where deemed appropriate to increase species population This could take form of adult fish introduction; or spawn or fry introduction.

Aim 2 - To identify areas of Wensum that could be opened up to Anglers which are currently not available

Objectives

Map River to identify areas currently availability to Anglers and those not available and under Riparian Ownership Identify status of current availability - ie club; syndicate; day ticket; free access; private etc.

Approach Current land owners where no fishing allowed to see if they would open up their water to Anglers. This especially applies to areas where river restoration work has been carried out by EA

Aim 3 - To identify Predation problems within Wensum Valley and put in further measures to reduce if deemed suitable and appropriate.

Objectives-

To review Cormorant Population on River and identify areas where further management would be beneficial. Apply for licences accordingly.

To implement a feasible programme of signal crayfish trapping in liaison with EA and NE.

To identify Mink and Otter Populations on River by monitoring and feed back from Anglers; Clubs; Riparian Owners. Put in controls for Mink Population whilst recognising limitations imposed on Otter Control.

Aim 4 – To identify and understand the core components of chemical and diffused pollution impacting the Wensum Valley.

Objectives –

To work with UEA and others to analyse the sources of contamination.

To work towards building a community program of capturing the health of the river through programs such as freshwaterwatch.

To ensure that the statutory bodies have the evidence to resolve the point source components impacting the river.
