Specialists in fisheries & fishery Management throughout the UK. We have a dedicated fisheries team who understand the parameters of a quality fishery.
Aquascienceltd have the tools to ensure that we promote your fishery with innovative products and services. Freshwater angling has undergone a quiet revolution since the 1970s, and fishery management has become a more dynamic, challenging business. High anglers’ expectations, high stocking rates, disease, invasive species, fish theft, predatory birds, nutrient enrichment, climate change – the list of new challenges seems endless, yet well-managed fisheries continue to prosper. We offer a range of fishery services and products to help fishery managers meet the challenges.
Stocks in many inland fisheries are under severe pressure from predation by cormorants and goosanders. Recruitment in some fisheries has been virtually eliminated, leading to serious gaps in year classes. Research by CEFAS has shown that fish refuge structures can substantially reduce cormorant visits and fish losses to bird predation. Our sturdy, long-lasting fish refuge islands are designed to protect the 3-8″ (75-200mm) fish preferred by cormorants and goosanders, and they can be easily customised to provide refuge for larger fish, if required.
