This volunteer activity involves visiting the river bank in Tewkesbury, Gloucestershire in Spring, and helping us count fish as they migrate upstream. We use this fish count data to help estimate migrating shad numbers and get a better understanding of their migration behaviour. Volunteers can also explore opportunities to gain further research experience by helping with other monitoring activities.
**The shad migration usually starts in late April but volunteering is on hold this year to the COVID-19 restrictions.**
