POSTPONED: Fish Health and Condition (Beginner/Intermediate)

This course is perfect for those wishing to become skilled in determining elements of fish health.

Due to government guidelines relating to COVID-19, we will be postponing our training courses for 2020. 

Skill Level:



This course is aimed at fisheries managers, fishermen and naturalists who want to know more about the fish that they see, catch or handle. Without recourse to detailed dissection it is quite staggering how much we can piece together about a fish’s well-being and condition, its age and growth, life history and sexual development. This course aims to provide an insight into the ways of observing fish for these purposes. Roger Sweeting has spent many years studying fish health and helping to develop an understanding of how to improve fisheries for Thames Water, the National Rivers Authority (NRA), the Environment Agency and the FBA. Some knowledge of fish biology would be helpful in completing this course but it is by no means required.
