Tweed Anglers donate cash to Protect Fish Habitat project
Work to protect Atlantic Salmon habitat on the River Tweed and its tributaries from the effects of climate change have received a boost thanks to a £4,572 donation to Borders environmental charity Tweed Forum from online booking agent, FishPal.
The Borders based online booking and information service Fishpal, provides details of where to fish, current conditions, latest catches, and accommodation options across the British Isles (and Iceland). Anglers who arrange to fish through FishPal can make a contribution to one of its chosen charities.
The donation will be spent on Tweed Forum’s riparian planting work where trees are planted in key riverside locations to help provide vital shade for the salmon population in the freshwater phase of its lifecycle.
Tweed Forum is currently working in partnership with the Tweed Foundation to identify the optimum locations for riparian tree planting for fish stock protection.
