Detail

In response to concerns over the adverse effects of cormorant depredation at freshwater fisheries this one year project was carried out between October 1995 and October 1996 and comprised (i) an experiment to assess the impact of cormorants at a small stocked lagoon and (ii) a questionnaire survey of the perceived impact of cormorants on the fish stocks of still waters in part of the Thames catchment.
