Research

Bristol Avon Rivers Trust works independently and with numerous partners to carry out research which will help to inform future work. Our main areas of research include:

  • Walkover surveys to assess the current state of the river and surrounding habitat.
  • Ecological surveys which involve monitoring the inveterbrates and macrophytes (aquatic plants).
  • Citizen science research projects involving the general public in data collection, for example our Waterblitz project where volunteers gathered water quality samples.
  • Other examples include mapping pollution sources and obstructions to fish migration, to feedback to funders and partner organisations.
