Midlothian Esks Barriers Easement Project


The Forth Rivers Trust is working with local community groups to ensure that works are undertaken to both redundant and licenced barriers to restore fish passage to the river. Their river is highly impacted from redundant industrial legacy but is highly resilient and dynamic. There are approx 20 barriers on the river, and most are no longer in use. Despite the impacts, the river has a returning population of Atlantic salmon and sea trout as well as eels, lamprey and resident brown trout and grayling.
