Fish hatchery

This topic will allow learners to learn more about freshwater ecology, using the life cycle of the brown/sea trout as a particular theme, grow them in a hatchery and then free into the Clyde. They will learn about fish farming and releasing the fish into open river to repopulate the wild trout.  Further resources and support can be found at the Clyde River Foundation website.
