Cromarty Firth Residents to Find Out About Fish

Issued: 20 Jul 2007

Easter Ross residents are being encouraged to find out about the freshwater fish that live on their doorstep by joining staff from the Cromarty Firth Fisheries Trust at an electro-fishing afternoon at Dunglass Island on the River Conon on Wednesday (25 July).

Simon McKelvey, Cromarty Firth Fisheries Trust said ~This is an opportunity to see some of the freshwater fish life that lives in our rivers and to learn about the research work of the Trust.~

The afternoon forms part of a wider project to encourage people in Easter Ross and the Black Isle to find out about the wildlife that live on their doorstep, that is being undertaken by the Ross & Cromarty (East) Biodiversity Group. This event is being carried out with the support of Brahan Estates.

Those interested in taking part should meet at the bridge onto Dunglass Island, at 2.00pm. To get there follow the single track road south west from the playing fields at Maryburgh, take the first left turning after the Dunglass Stables and follow the track down to the bridge.
