This is the report from the Derwent and West Cumbria Fisheries Advisory Committee meeting, which was held on the 7th January 1980.
The report contains sections on net and fixed engine licence duties, pollution incidents on the River Cocker and Wilton Beck, and information on the water resource development for West Cumbria. It also includes the report by the area fisheries officer which looks at river conditions and fishing, migratory fish movement, and an update on Holmwrangle Hatchery. Also covered is the stocking carried out by the Water Authority, fish disease and biological work on Ennerdale Water supply and char marking.
The Fisheries Advisory Committee was part of the Regional Water Authorities, in this case the North West Water Authority. This preceded the Environment Agency which came into existence in 1996.
