I spent nine days from the 5th September until the 14th September working for the Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust as a member of their field tagging team during the summer PARR tagging work conducted on Juvenile salmonids along the River Frome in Dorset. The work is part of the SAMARCH project. This experience was incredibly eye opening as it enabled me to participate in the methods of such field work, seeing first-hand how fish tagging is carried out. The SAMARCH program provides invaluable data on the health of salmonid populations.
