Video of talk by Prof. Jonny Grey

WTT Research and Conservation Officer, Professor Jonathan Grey, recently spoke to a meeting of the Friends of the Dales at their From Peat to Paddling — What Is A Healthy River? conference held in September 2022.

The title of the talk is Wharfe Woes and Trout Tales’ . Jonny covers the trout lifecycle, habitat requirements for each stage and the bottlenecks which prevent trout populations from reaching their potential with particular focus on the River Wharfe and other rivers in North Yorkshire. These rivers are used to illustrate how rivers work’ with natural processes of erosion and deposition and linkage to the floodplain. 

The talk was recorded at a live event so there is some background noise at the start until the audience settles down.
