Barbel and Chub study on the River Dove and upper Trent

Andy Frances

Staff member
I had this sent to me yesterday from Darin (Environment Agency):

The next open meeting for the Barbel and Chub study on the River Dove and upper Trent will be held on


7pm and 9pm

Tutbury Village Hall
Monk Street

Would you please let your members know, the project is slowly getting traction and the more anglers we get involved the better, if your members mainly match/pleasure fish these are just as important to the project as the specimen anglers who only target bigger fish, finding reports of smaller fish is vital to the project. At the last meeting a few anglers asked if I could let as many clubs know as possible so please pass the word.

If your club would like me to come along and present the study please let me know, I can come with full projector and EA badge or I can come in with my laptop and present in a less formal manor. This has to happen over the next couple of months while my work load allows it. We are getting scale returns and in time we will start to get a better look at what is going on in the rivers.

For more information email me or call.
