Welland Sea Trout Project

Many years ago, Sea Trout would naturally make their way from The Wash all the way up as far as the Town Bridge. The introduction of weirs and locks during past decades created impassable barriers to this migration and the Trout disappeared from the upper reaches of the river. The project currently under way will create fish passes through the locks and ‘ladders’ on the weirs, which will enable the Trout to once again navigate their way to Stamford.
