Title: Oxford structures fisheries survey 1992
Author: Simon Hughes
Document Type: Monograph
The National Rivers Authority has a statutory obligation to maintain, improve and develop inland fisheries. This is the first exhaustive fisheries survey undertaken by the NRA Thames Region on the distributaries of the River Thames. The survey was requested by NRA Thames Region Technical Services and paid for by the NRA Thames Region Flood Defence section to be combined with the results of archaeological, biological, conservation and landscape surveys in support of a feasibility study of the management of flood flows around the city of Oxford. The results of this survey will also serve to form the datum against which future changes in fish populations in the river can be compared. The aims of this survey are to provide information on fish populations, species diversity and distribution, and comment on factors that may have influenced these parameters.
