Teme catch records request
As part of research for a PhD with Bournemouth University, focusing on barbel in the River Teme. Catherine Gutmann Roberts has requested assistance from the BAA and a number of other clubs with waters on the Teme.
As part of the study she hopes to include angler catch records - both for the next three seasons and for historical data. Any BAA member willing to fill in an online catch returns form would be much appreciated (click on link below).
Other areas of the project are to include spawning habitat quality, tracking work to look at movement, feeding areas, blockages to migration and growth, juvenile surveying to identify prey items and whether there is abundant food, growth data on the juveniles and whether the recruitment of new fish is successful.
