Monitoring Data – Where does it go?
The Environment Agency are currently reviewing their monitoring programme and how this links with other organisations such as Rivers Trusts and the Catchment Partnerships. Therefore, this offers us a great opportunity to get involved and influence some of the outcomes.
We’ve been working at a national level to discuss how the monitoring you help us undertake, including riverfly surveys and electrofishing, can be co-ordinated with data from other sources. This includes information from the Environment Agency, Natural England and other partners. Together we can understand the bigger picture, plan better for the future and maximise resources.
If you have any ideas on how best to share information which is then comparable, accessible at a range of levels and understandable please let us know.
