Since our last update the BASG Board have met with both the Environment Agency and Natural England to discuss the impact of the proposed fish barrier.
We are pleased to announce that our concerns have been taken seriously by both organisations and discussions are underway to protect the valuable Bream population of the Northern Broads.
We have been informed in the last 24 hours that the fish barrier will not be installed this spring and that further consultation and investigation in to the best way forward will continue through 2020, with the BASG taking a front seat role in these consultations.
Watch this space.
