Last week BART worked with Westcountry Rivers Trust to conduct a fish rescue on Cleveland Lido in Bath. The lido, which is the oldest of its kind in the UK, is being restored following its closure in 1984. More information on the lido can be found here: https://www.hlf.org.uk/about-us/media-centre/press-releases/uk%E2%80%99s-oldest-public-open-air-pools-reopen-thanks-heritage

Around 600 fish were removed by electrofishing and taken to a new donor pond including perch, ruffe and chub of various sizes.
