Chance To Learn About Salmon, Eels, Lamprey and other Fish of the Conon River

Do you want to learn to tell the difference between a salmon and a sea trout parr or to find out what a lamprey looks like and what it is? 

The Ross and Cromarty Local Biodiversity Action Group have organised an open afternoon with the Cromarty Firth Fisheries staff on the River Conon to find out how they survey the burns and rivers using Electro fishing equipment.

The event, suitable for families, takes place on Saturday (23 August) at 2pm and anyone wishing to come along should meet up and park at Dunglass Island, just past the riding centre along the Dunglass Road in Maryburgh.  People should wear suitable footwear to walk over rough grassland beside the burn. After learning more about the fish, there will be a chance to explore the river with The Highland Council’s Countryside Ranger, Martin Hind to learn more about some of the smaller creatures that live by the river.

There is no need to book and the event, which will last a couple of hours, is free.
