Somerset Otter Group.      

The Somerset Otter Group is hosting a talk on;

‘Fishes of England’s Lowland Rivers.’ By Dr Mark Everard.

This talk will address the diversity of fishes in lowland rivers, including aspects of their ecology and the adaptations of each species.  We will look at the life cycles of some species, their diversity of diets, and their place in the ecosystems of which they are a part

We are very fortunate that Dr Mark Everard, a director of Bristol and Avon River Trust and associate professor of the University of the West of England, but probably better known as an authoritative author of British Freshwater Fish, has agreed to speak to us.


This will be a fascinating insight into a neglected area of Natural History, an area very relevant to our studies as well.


The Science Centre Lecture Theatre, Wellington School,  South Street, Wellington, TA21 8NT.

Thursday 27th February. 7.00pm for 7.30pm start.


A map of Wellington School is attached. The science Centre is beyond, and on the same side, as the tennis courts. There is a public car park within Wellington very close to the school.


N.B. there will be a charge of £3 to cover meeting expenses. There will be no refreshments provided.


James is extending invitations to local fishing groups.
