 Marcus Sibley from the Environment Agency presented the 1st item on what they provide for anglers, supported by Adam Clark on various projects within the Area.

Paul Thomas the AT Regional Enforcement Manager presented the work in setting up the Voluntary Bailiffing Service and how the police are actively becoming involved with fish theft.

James Lews presented the work undertaken on participation and getting people into angling. Followed by a passionate talk by Nick Watkins on junior engagement in Essex.. 

Many questions were put to the presenters during the forum, which gave the event a very open and transparant view on what is being done to progress fisheries and angling within the area,

The Environment Agency undertook a further Hydro Acoustic Survey on the River Thurne in Oct 2015 following the Prymnesium event in the Spring of 2015.

thurne survey 2015

These surveys undertaking in darkness ensures that the fish which migrate out into open water at night can be captured by the sonar technology. The density is measured as fish per 1000 sq metres.

Click on the map to jump to a google map view of the survey or the attached full EA report at the bottom of the page.

Notes for use of this data.  

These data represent a snapshot of the fish distribution along a river at the time of survey. Surveys capitalise on the natural distribution of fish during the hours of darkness.

Fish density.

The value shown for fish density represents the number of fish per 1000 m3 of water sampled. The total volume of water sampled depends on the beam shape, channel profile, beam frequency and boat speed.  If the total volume sampled is less than 1000 m3 for a segment (approximately 1/10 of a sequence) then the calculated fish density does not represent the actual density. Consequently within the data set a value of 0.0 would indicate insufficient sample volume.  Conversely a fish density value of 0.1 or higher indicates that sample volume is sufficient but fish are almost absent. In most cases insufficient sample volume  is a consequence of channel width and / or extensive weed growth.   Fish size Research shows that the strength of a return echo relates to the size of the object producing the return.

The equipment used during these surveys is sensitive enough to record return echoes from objects less than 3mm in size. Objects providing return echoes of this size could include reed stems, weed fronds, fish fry and suspended debris. To avoid erroneous fish counts return echoes are filtered during post processing. Fish density value reflects this filtering and the return echo strength chosen ensures that the minimum theoretical fish size counted is 100 mm.

The Angling Trust team have arranged the following Grant Writing Workshops across the East of England during 2016/17.

These useful events follow on from does run last year which enabled many clubs and fisheries to structure a successful Angling Improvement Fund Grant. Click on the eventbrite link to book your place.

Greg Oakes 60031 people attended Great Gonerby Social Club for this years visit into Lincolnshire for the Regional Forum.

Greg Oakes from the Environment Agency presented the 1st item on Poaching and Fish Theft.

Paul Thomas the AT Regional Enforcement Manager presented the work in setting up the Voluntary Bailiffing Service and how the police are actively becomming involved with fish theft.

Ray Torrington presented the work undertaken by Deeping St James AC in improving fisheries and protecting your fisheries and how the club raised the funds to achieve this. Ray's content is available here. 

Chris Reeds a lead fisheries officer from the EA gave a insight into the habitat improvements and the benefits they bring to fish on several of the local rivers.

Many questions were put to the presenters during the forum, which gave the event a very open and transparant view on what is being done to progress fisheries and angling within the area,

 

 

   

AIF Completed fence 1 800

This is a picture of the Otter protection fence installed by Deeping St James on their venue Horseshoe Lake adjacent to the Nene Valley Railway. It was partly funded through Rod Licence income via the Angling Improvement Fund. Which Ray Torrington presented during the forum.

This was one of many investments the Angling Improvement Fund supported during last year throughout England with Rod Licence money. For more information on the AIF click here.

The Environment Agency undertook a week long program of Hydro Acoustic Surveys on the Broadland rivers in the 1st week of October 2014.

These surveys undertaking in darkness ensures that the fish which migrate out into open water at night can be captured by the sonar technology.

The rivers surveyed were: Bure, Thurne, Waveney and Yare
