This practical booklet describes simple management techniques which can be easily understood and put into practice by non-specialists to create good habitat. The research showed that habitat was the most important factor determining fish numbers in lowland streams. The booklet follows three logical sections: what makes good habitat for freshwater fish; recognising habitat problems; and how to provide good habitat. These sections are well illustrated with photographs and diagrams providing helpful visual aids. A practically-designed content, combined with splash-proof spiral bound pages and a small pocket-sixed format, makes this a functional aid for any active river keeper.

Review:

The information contained in the booklet will be invaluable in enabling fishery managers for game fish, and, in so doing, conserve the aquatic environments of our lowland streams and the enormous variety of life dependent upon them. -- "Paul Knight, Deputy Director of The Salmon and Trout Association"

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

British lowland rivers and streams need regular habitat management to realise their conservation and fisheries potential. Stream management was widely practised in the past, but unfortunately, this tradition has been neglected and river keepers are themselves becoming an endangered species. In addition, many rivers have been degrated through a variety of rural and urban impacts. Consequently, the necessity for stream management is greater than ever. To tackle today's problems, traditional keepering needs to be combined with environmental research so that methods used are always at the forfront of knowledge.
