Accelerating the recovery of the European Eel

Trent eel project

Partnership working in the Trent Valley gives the Critically Endangered European Eel hope for the future on World Fish Migration Day

April 2018

Business and Conservation Groups get together to help the critically endangered European Eel at two locations in the Trent valley on

World Fish Migration Day

              The project partners

EDF Energy has joined forces with conservation groups in the Trent valley to help migration for the critically endangered European eel.

At Idle Valley Nature Reserves near Retford, Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust has worked with Aquatic Control Engineering to install an ‘eel pass’ to help baby eels to migrate from the River Idle into the Belmoor Lake area of the Nature Reserve.

And the Canal & River Trust has employed FishTek Consulting who are installing an eel pass on Hazelford Weir on the River Trent, between Nottingham and Newark.

Both projects were organised by the Sustainable Eel Group.
