Have you seen our specialist electric fishing equipment? This short film shows our teams using specialist kit to survey the fish in the River Blackwater. They’re using a technique called ‘depletion surveys’ as part of the National Monitoring Programme in accordance with our Water Framework Directive (WFD) sampling programme.
The WFD is a piece of European Union legislation designed to preserve, restore and improve the water environment. It establishes a framework for managing the water environment in a holistic manner taking into account environmental, social and economic factors.
