Angling and nature conservation

This project is hosted by Herts & Middlesex Wildlife Trust working in conjunction with the Colne Valley Fisheries Consultative. It aims to achieve integrated management of fisheries which balance providing satisfying angling opportunities with conserving and increasing biodiversity to the benefit of the wider Colne Valley. An accredited training programme will be provided for fishery managers in the valley covering topics including fisheries management and wetland ecology and will culminate in the writing of long term management plans for the sites involved. These sites will be surveyed to establish their wildlife potential and practical works identified in the management plan undertaken both by volunteers and contractors.
