This symposium will present many of the new scientific findings from the Unlocking the Severn shad monitoring programme over the last 5 years, along with a host of presentations on the latest twaite shad research and other restoration projects across Europe.

Taking place in Worcester, Englang, UK, the symposium programme consists of 20+ presentations over the two mornings covering a variety themes including:

Shad freshwater migration
Shad life at sea
Management/restoration of shad
Threats to shad
Monitoring techniques

The Shad Symposium will be free of charge to attend and is predominantly for anyone directly involved in fisheries science/management; conservation organisations; universities and research institutions; environmental consultants; policy makers including Government departments, local authorities; and organisations responsible for the reporting and management of shad as part of the Habitats Directive from across Europe. It will be a great opportunity to meet and discuss all things shad, river restoration and fish passes.

Other interested members of the public can also apply to enter a ballot for a limited number of lecture tickets allowing them to attend the presentations in the morning only – more details will be released by early May.

Over the course of the two days, delegates will have an opportunity to join field trips in the afternoons to see some of the 6 fish passage improvements made as part of the Unlocking the Severn project, that have now unlocked over 250km of migratory pathways for shad and many other species.
