Electro Fishing Hawley Meadows

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.
