LET’S TALK

Eel Screen Installation

This is a recent example of an eel screen installation which is necessary primarily for environmental reasons.

The Environmental Agency brought in regulations to protect the European eel stock, a threatened and rare species of fish. Eels are a migratory species that travel from the Sargasso Sea off the east coast of North America, drift towards Europe entering estuaries to migrate upstream to reach maturity.

AQT worked with a team to install new screens and fencing at this water treatment works, replacing the mesh at the point of intake to a smaller aperture to protect eels and small fish from intake into the pumps and return them back to the river.
