THE Institute of Fisheries Management is running a one-day seminar on practical ways of improving a fishery.

The day will be based around practical workshops and supplemented with short presentations and supported by course notes. It is aimed at fishery managers, fishery owners or committee members, who may have responsibility for carrying out management and improvements to their fisheries.

A wide range of subjects will be covered on the course including how to stop bank erosion, improving water quality and successfully establishing aquatic plants such as lilies.

The course is being led by Ash Girdler one of the country’s leading independent fishery consultants.

Ash Said,

“This course provides an excellent opportunity for fishery managers to learn from first hand experience how to improve their fisheries with simple proven practical steps. It importantly will also help them to understand why the techniques work and why they would benefit their fishery.”

The day is being held on Saturday September 13th 2003 at
