Scottish Anglers Riverfly Monitoring Initiative (ARMI) meeting outcomes

During the November meeting SEPA pledged continued support for Citizen Science and particularly riverfly monitoring. Some of the main outcomes from the meeting were to make significant progress in setting specific trigger levels for Clyde riverfly monitoring sites in 2016 and allocating a named SEPA Ecology contact for the River Clyde catchment to deal with the follow up of pollution incidents and SEPA investigations.

 

Another significant outcome is the planned transfer of CRIMP data to the National Riverfly Monitoring database. Over the winter period, Ben will register current monitoring sites with the transition to the new database taking place after the Caring for the Clyde meeting in February.
