Attending EA Electro Fishing

18 Feb

At our recent meeting in Morpeth, Jon Shelley offered to pass on our interest in attending electro fishing on the Coquet to his colleague Phil Rippon, the Fisheries Technical Specialist.

We have yet to be advised of time and place, but expect this to happen sometime during the summer.

Could anyone who is interested in attending this please reply to the secretary at ?

We will then compile a list and liaise with Phil Rippon when further details are available.
