Salmon Parr

Another good year for salmon parr at Dairy House

Dairy House has for many years been one of the regular sites that we at Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust visit during our annual salmon parr microchipping campaign in the Frome catchment. This section of the river usually hold good numbers of young of the year salmon and trout and the last two years has been no exception with catches of 600 and 775 salmon parr in 2014 and 2015, respectively. Dairy House has consistently had a good marcrophyte cover dominated by Ranunculus, which appears to be the preferred habitat by the young of the year salmonids and particularly salmon in chalk streams.

Thank you Game and Wildlife 🙂  Thrilled to be able to help out with your valuable work and obviously rather pleased that the habitat work we carry out on the Frome is working..
