Welcome To Burton Mutual Angling Association

Barbel - Assistance required

Are you able to help with the following project?

"A speculative email about locating suitable sites for a research project at Loughborough University. Myself and colleagues (Andrew Pledger and Stephen Rice) are looking for Barbel hotspots in the Trent catchment on gravel beds (not silt) to investigate the effect that fish feeding events have on river beds (i.e. when they feed do they disturb the gravels in the bottom of the river bed). The work is non-invasive and essentially involves installation of a number of washers at a number of riffle sites over a 48 hour period. The time spent to install and collect the washers with most likely just over 2 hours maximum meaning that angler disruption will be minimal.

Are you aware of any suitable wadable sites in your stretches be able to point me in the direction of anyone who may be help at all? Your help would be greatly appreciated".

Many thanks in advance.
