This report aims to find the distribution and abundance of fish in Savick Brook. Parts of Savick Brook are to be transformed into the new Ribble Link Canal connection. The Ribble Link will create a navigable connection between the Ribble estuary and the Lancaster Canal and it will also allow boats to enter the Leeds/Liverpool Canal. This increases the length of navigable watercourse in the area and could result in increased tourism in the region. Savick brook is a small tributary of the lower River Ribble. It rises to the North East of Preston and drains North Preston. The brook has not been surveyed before and 2001 is the start of the Ribble link project. This is an investigational survey to ascertain the populations of fish present so that we can better formulate an impact assessment of the proposed works.
