On the 9th June on the beach near Port William the Solway Firth Partnership ran their annual event to celebrate World Ocean Week. Many free activities were available including sea kayaking, beach casting, rock pooling and beach art. A large marquee included a range of stands for organisations whose work includes marine issues. GFT had a stand which described the work that we undertake in and around estuaries. Sea trout, shad, lamprey and sparling were all covered. Our stand also had a tank containing live examples of various fish species which use both marine and freshwater environments during their life cycle such as eels, salmon and trout. There was a great turn out for the event and the sun was shining too which always helps!
