We finally completed the second part of Stranraer Academy’s ‘Fish Project’ on Monday the 22nd April after failing on our first attempt to reach the upper Luce during the heavy snow drifts!

This time the weather was cold and damp but the students were surprisingly jubilant, despite mostly only being clothed in hoodies, jacketless!

In this part of the project, the students had to identify three sites (from a possible six) that they might place their classroom reared Luce salmon alevins back into.

Having narrowed it down to the top of the Cross Water of Luce, the Cross Water at New Luce and the Lady Burn at Glenluce; we undertook a series of measurements at each site to correctly identify the best release site.
