Over on the blog, Jon Grey is hoping to create a series of informal reports from current researchers undertaking studies relevant to wild trout.
Jess Picken is our brave guinea pig! Jess completed a MSc at the University of Birmingham in River Environments and Management, and spent a year studying the impacts of high river flows on fish ecosystems in Alaska. With climate change models suggesting that high and low flow events will become more frequent in the future, she chose a PhD topic providing a perfect opportunity for her to broaden her knowledge on extreme flow events. The goal of the PhD is to provide reliable scientific knowledge to river management teams to help keep healthy populations of salmon and trout in our beautiful rivers.
