About this book
In recent years there has been considerable interest and work carried out in the area of habitiat management and remedial work in streams and rivers across the globe in an effort to benefit stocks on salmon and trout, which in many areas have seen declining wild populations. This important book brings together contributions from many internationally renowned experts, highlighting many key aspects of the subject.
Themes running through the book include habitat requirements for salmonids, catchment management, riparian zone management, within-channel habitat management, organisation, funding and execution of management work, monitoring and evaluation, and a conclusions section drawing together the book's main themes.
