Event description

Description

Many in Oxford will be familiar with the Thames, as its winds its way from the old Abbey at Godstow, under Folly Bridge and over the weir at Iffley. Apart from the anglers though, sitting patiently and expectant, rod in hand, few will be familiar with the life beneath the surface of England’s longest river. It is hoped that this talk will provide an insight into the fish species that populate this important waterway, how they are monitored, what pressures rest on them and what the future holds for them.

Stuart Manwaring is a Fisheries Technical Specialist based at the Environment Agency Office in Wallingford. He has been with the Environment Agency for 15 years and for most of these he has been working in or around rivers. He is also a keen fisherman and holds the Thames Angling Conservancy record for the largest Silver Bream caught in the Thames.
