Norfolk Broads fish barriers face legal challenge

14th October 2020

Top fisheries scientists at the Institute of Fisheries Management who formally reviewed the project came to the same conclusions as the Environment Agency’s own fisheries experts judging the barriers to be potentially harmful and recommending that they should not proceed.
