Title: River Axe Fish Study - Supplementary Report
Author: J.S. Alabaster
Document Type: Monograph
Annotation: J.S. Alabaster collection
Further to the evaluation of fish movements in the estuary of the R. Axe (Alabaster, 1986) which was based on the option then under consideration to abstract up to 25 Ml/d (0.289 m3/s) of surface water from the river near the tidal limit, leaving an assumed minimum residual flow of 0.625 m3/s, a further evaluation is now made of the likely effect upon fish movement of any abstraction below that minimum. The present report, however, should be read in conjunction with its predecessor. In addition, an opinion is given on 1) the minimum residual flow that would be appropriate in the R. Coly, and 2) the likely effect on the tributaries of augmentation of the flow using groundwater.
