Holt Fish Pass – Facts & Figures
Holt is the third fish pass that twaite shad and other migratory fish pass through on their way upriver. It is located in the village of Holt, in Worcestershire.
The fish pass at Holt was the most challenging to construct, as the steep river valley sides meant that all equipment had to be transported to site by boat!
Work on the fish pass began in in May 2020, and the team started by setting up the compound 1.2km upstream of the weir, from which equipment would be transported to site via the river.
Due to the challenging nature of the build, it was the final fish pass to be completed out of the four built along the River Severn. In January 2022, Holt fish pass was opened to the river. Landscaping works were complete in April 2022, and by May the team had finished work at the compound upstream.
