Details

River Habitats for Coarse Fish is an illustrated guide book aimed at real world river users.

It describes the many ways that coarse fish species depend upon the diversity of habitats in river systems and considers how this dependence changes throughout the stages of their lives - from spawning and eggs, through to the juvenile and adult stages – and with the changing seasons and river conditions. This understanding is important if we are to recognise the many ‘bottlenecks’ to the population and the variety of coarse fish species that has resulted from historic changes to our rivers. It is also important if we are to manage rivers positively to protect and improve the vitality of coarse fisheries - a process that will also benefit the wider wildlife with which coarse fishes are interdependent.

River Habitats for Coarse Fish arms fishery and river managers and angling clubs with the knowledge and the practical habitat guidance they need to best direct their efforts to enhance the prospects for all types of fish and other riverine wildlife. It will also be of use to fishermen and other members of the public who enjoy the natural beauty of thriving rivers and want to do their bit to help improve them.

Dr Mark Everard is Associate Professor of Ecosystem Services at the University of the West of England (UWE Bristol), Founding Director of the Bristol Avon Rivers Trust (BART), an Angling Trust Ambassador and science advisor to the Salmon and Trout Association (S&TA).

Mark is also a passionate fisherman and naturalist with a frequent presence in magazines, television and radio. He is keen to see fish populations protected and recognised as important elements of the river ecosystems that provide us with so much enjoyment and that sustain us now and into the future.
