Author: E.D. Le Cren
Document Type: Monograph
This review is directed at assessing the relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and application of the NRAs R and D programme in fisheries from its inception up until August 1994. The National Rivers Authority has Statutory Duties to maintain, improve and develop fisheries and to carry out research and development in support of its core functions, of which fisheries is one. When it was created in 1989, the NRA inherited research and development (R and D) projects from both the Department of the Environment (DoE) and the Regional Water Authorities. Since then it has been developing both its own fisheries strategy and R and D programme to support that strategy. This review, carried out by an independent fishery biologist who.has had experience in both research and its management, is part of the policy of assessment of the NRAs R and D to ensure that it delivers the intended benefits to the fishery function effectively and efficiently.
