Fantastic response to restoration work on the River Nairn

Male salmon were observed ‘guarding’ a completed redd on a new section of channel on the River Nairn at Aberarder during a recent site assessment. cbec designed the restoration plans and provided construction supervision throughout September of this year. The rapid biological response to the works (i.e. extensive spawning by sea trout and Atlantic salmon) has taken everyone by surprise!
