Invertebrate monitoring workshop 21-Jun-2008

Ten DNMAC members attended a workshop run by eminent angler and Caddis expert Stuart Crofts, assisted by Paul Gaskell (now WTT Trout in the Town officer). We learnt the technique of riffle sampling and were introduced to the bugs, grubs and small fishes which inhabit the bed of our river. The attendees paid for this course themselves.

Subsequently the DNMAC committee has agreed to fund the purchase of the equipment we need to conduct routine sampling.
