7. Install two eel passes at Holyfield Weir
Theme: Ecology and morphology
- Enable fish passage throughout the catchment
Install two eel passes on Holyfield Weir to allow eels access to good quality habitat in Holyfield Lake.
Two gravity fed eel passes have been installed on Holyfield Weir within Lea Valley Regional Park. This now allows yellow eels to access an additional 2.5km of the River Lea and 55ha of good quality still water habitat within Holyfield Lake. Work was delivered as part of the Conserving Slimy Wrigglers Project.
