River Carron Biodiversity Audit


Project Description

This project looked in detail at the biodiversity of the aquatic ecosystem, particularly the fish species, the habitat adjacent to the river and the outcome of the restocking of native Atlantic Salmon and Sea Trout populations. The report concluded that the River Carron has the highest diversity of native freshwater fish species of any river system in Northwest Scotland. It is intended to monitor the river from now on, using this audit as a baseline.

Start date 2005
