Ground breaking research in the Fens
There's some cutting edge science at work, including fish tagged with transponders, infra-red cameras and an amazing pipeline linking the Wissey with the Cut-Off Channel.
Karen's better known as the Barbel Lady, for an acclaimed research project which involved radio-tagging barbel on the Ouse to find out why they were in decline.
Now she's studying fish movements through the new siphon, built by Kye and his colleagues at the EA after being shipped over from Holland. Ground-breaking stuff I'm now writing up for the papers, so more news soon. Thanks guys.
