Description

Cefas have been awarded a research project which aims to examine the spatial and temporal behaviour of adult salmon and sea trout in the estuary of the River Tyne, north-east England to determine their survival and the potential impact of environmental and anthropogenic factors on populations.

Working with Cefas there is a requirement for 50 adult salmon and 25 adult sea trout to be caught (for tag and release) in the lower River Tyne estuary.

This tender is seeking a registered commercial salmon vessel and crew to undertake tag and release work in the Tyne Estuary. The vessel should be under 15m in length, operating 100mm mesh T-nets in order to retain the fish in good condition for acoustic tagging.
