Title: Shill Brook fisheries survey 1989
Author: A. Killingbeck
Document Type: Monograph
In the upper reaches of the Shill .brook (above Bampton) fish populations were found to be extremely low. There is evidence that this may have been caused by a number of pollution incidents. In the lower reaches there is a good fish population made up entirely of coarse fish. River engineering has reduced habitat quality whilst effluent from Carterton and Bampton sewage treatment works have reduced water quality. These factors may account for the absence of brown trout.
