Caring for our fish

One of the three key roles of our national fisheries and angling team is to look after the wellbeing of our fish stocks.

The job is wide ranging. From fish recues during winter works to consulting on fish passes, our team make sure our waterways have healthy fish stocks not just for us humans, but for the abundant wildlife within this beautiful natural environment.

Careful handling
