Hoveton Great Broad Campaign
Back in 2012, I attended when I was a member of the Broads Authority, a conference hosted by the Authority on Lake Restoration. All the talk and presentations throughout the day was about how roach and bream are effectively impacting on this natural ecosystem.
I remember standing up at the end and asking actually who was representing the poor fish.
Who would of thought 10 years later, public money was being used to propose the very thing and destroy the very thing that the Broads is so famous for. The link below will explore the campaign and legal engagement that finally in later 2022 saw common sense prevail and the bio-manipulation abandoned.
The effort needed to sustain such a campaign and resultant legal challenge, dominated both mine and others for a number of years.
