Jon Trevett sent in some photos from site including a magnificent eel. It is so nice to see such a stunning specimen as our eel population is a fraction of what it used to be.

Our bespoke eel pass design and installation work in conjunction with the Environment Agency (read more here) is helping to improve migration of elvers and mature eels, which goes a little way towards improving their chances of increasing in numbers once again.

Have a look here to read more about our eels – they are on the ‘Red List’ of endangered species.

If you own or manage a section of river with man-made obstacles to fish and eel passage we may be able to help. Nick Williams is the man to talk to 01460 279 200. If you need our fishery expertise please contact Scott Rice on the same number.
