Monday, October 22, 2018

The Tamdhu Fish Pass project, which SEPA is a partner of, was unveiled last week. The 4.5 metre high, 16m long construction is now allowing salmon and sea trout to breed in a 2.3 mile stretch of the Knockando Burn that has been inaccessible since Victorian times. The target date for reopening this section of the Knockando Burn to migrating fish was 2027 but the Tamdhu Fish Pass Project has allowed this to be completed nine years early.
