8th annual Grayling Day

Today we met up with local anglers to survey grayling in the Clyde for our 8th annual grayling day. Every year we meet with members of local angling clubs to electrofish the South Calder Water in Motherwell and this year we were also joined by members of the University of Glasgow Fish Biology Group – thanks to everyone who came out and braved the cold to help out! The grayling day allows us to collect long-term data for this species within the Clyde catchment and provides a great opportunity for hands-on teamwork between anglers and scientists.

A full set of photos are up on the Fish Biology Group’s Facebook page here and a video of the day is here.
