SFCC Scale Reading Course

Fish scales, like trees, have growth rings which show the growth history of the fish and can therefore be a useful tool in fishery management. The Clyde River Foundation’s Fisheries Management Planner David McColl recently attended a scale reading course run by the Scottish Fisheries Co-ordination Centre (SFCC) at the Marine Scotland Science Freshwater Fisheries Laboratory. The course was delivered by Ronald Campbell (Tweed Foundation) and Ross Gardiner (Marine Scotland Science), both of whom imparted a wealth of knowledge over the two-day course. The SFCC plan to run this course annually and more info can be found on their new website at http://www.sfcc.co.uk/.
