The first stage of the fish rescue will get underway on Friday 5 March. Contractors will be onsite catching a sample of fish so that the general health of the population can be assesed.
The results of the check will help to determine where the fish will be released. The sample catch could take up to two days to complete. The fish rescue will get underway shortly after, and should be completed in the coming few weeks.
We know many people will want to watch this operation and look at the fish as they are caught so we are are looking into how we can best do this.
We’ll keep posting updates to the blog, and also let you know if there are any opportunities to volunteer as part of the fish rescue operation.
