Marine and Freshwater Biology student, Stef Scott, is about to embark on her third year of study and is also volunteering her spare time to look after her local river, the Allander water.
Steph hopes to go into environmental consultancy after completing her degree; at the same time she has joined the network of CRIMPers on the River Kelvin monitoring fly-life. She said, ‘I’ve always had a love for bugs and beasties so CRIMP is a great way for me to indulge in my interests whilst contributing towards monitoring the health of the local rivers.’ Steph has been out and about this summer and started taking regular monthly samples on the tributary of the Kelvin. The Allander Water is a very productive burn and no wonder with the variety and magnitude of riverflies caught in her sample net. Great work Steph!
