The guide explains:

  • our role and that of other organisations who you may need to work with;
  • who is responsible for flood defences and what that means in practice;
  • how we can work together to protect and enhance the natural environment of our rivers and streams

The Westcountry Rivers Trust is an environmental charity (Charity no. 1135007, Company no. 06545646) established in 1995 to secure the preservation, protection, development and improvement of the rivers, streams, watercourses and water impoundments in the Westcountry and to advance the education of the public in the management of water.

The Wild Trout Trust acts as a catalyst in stimulating hands-on, in-the-water, habitat-improvement projects at a grass-roots level, effectively helping others to help themselves in the most cost-effective and efficient way.

 The Institute of Fisheries Management (IFM) is an international organisation of people sharing a common interest in the modern management of recreational and commercial fisheries.
