Update 1 - Please refer to the Tender Clarifications and the De Lank Geomorphological Review documents available to download below. Through the Water for Growth Project the Westcountry Rivers Trust will seek to improve stocks of migratory fish such as salmon and seatrout in the rivers Camel and Fowey. Funded by the European Union Structural Development Fund and in partnership with the Environment Agency, Natural England, South West Water, we will look to improve upstream and downstream fish passage, improve in river and bankside habitat, improve spawning habitats with the aim to increase numbers of juvenile salmon and seatrout. The project is about improving Cornwall's 'natural capital' (the rivers and their associated plants and animals) and in return encourage and facilitate a responsible and sustainable exploitation of this natural capital in the form of angling. We are seeking a suitably qualified and experienced consultant to undertake the Assessment and Project Development required to facilitate the removal of Keybridge Weir located in Cornwall on the De Lank River.
