River Prize Highly Recommended Project: River Calder

The Calder Improvement Project aimed to improve habitat connectivity and quality throughout the industrialised Lancashire Calder catchment. Over five years 19 fish passage and innovative channel enhancement projects have been carried out, resulting in 185 km of river habitat opened up to fish. Monitoring has shown success at each fish passage site, with salmon and sea trout already using this new habitat. >>
