The Institute of Fisheries Management (IFM) are hosting a two-day specialist conference looking at a range of different subject areas linked to faming practices and their interaction with the aquatic environment.
The GWCT's Chris Stoate will be among the speakers at the event which is taking place at the Rheged Centre in Penrith on 10-12th May.
Chris will be discussing the Water Friendly Farming project – a landscape scale experiment to investigate mutual benefits to farming and water.
Other topics that will be covered include ecological impacts of sediments, diffuse pollution and its impacts, working together (partnership projects and case studies) and finding a solution (practical measures to mitigate the impacts of sediments and nutrients).
The conference will provide a forum for discussion and networking for people working in both the farming and fisheries sectors. There will also be a field trip hosted by the Eden Rivers Trust where delegates will visit partnership projects in the Eden Catchment undertaken by the Eden RT and landowners
