Film night: Fish pass clearance by SPRITE (plus a quickfire tenkara masterclass!)

Fish Pass Clearance by SPRITE from Paul Gaskell on Vimeo.

For the second time in as many months, a dozen SPRITE volunteers have been out in the midday sun, clearing around 8 tonnes of sand, branches and other debris to get the fish pass on Sheffield’s Niagara Weir working again…

… raising a very valid question for us all to debate far into the night: What’s the long-term maintenance plan for structures like this, which help to get whole populations of wild fish up and over such major obstructions to migration?
