Fish Migration project on the Severn Ham – public meeting 24 March 2018


Dear Resident,

We would like to inform you about a new wildlife conservation project, which seeks to remove barriers to migratory fish in the River Severn.

The Severn is the UK’s longest river and has been important throughout history as an artery of trade to the world. It is also an important river for many species of migratory fish including salmon, eels and shad – a type of herring once well known in the region as the ‘May fish’.

The Severn Ham is a unique place to study the May fish migration and we need volunteers to visit Upper Lode weir and monitor the fish as they migrate over the weir.

We also warmly invite you to a public talk about the project on Saturday 24th March, 5.30pm at Theoc House, Barton Street. If you’re interested in attending or seeing the natural spectacle of the shad migration this spring please get in touch with Tim, the Volunteering Officer at Severn Rivers Trust.
