Salmon make use of Thrybergh Fish Pass

December 16, 2015

 

The presence of Salmon at Aldwarke has been made possible by the new Thrybergh hydropower scheme, 3 kms downstream from Aldwarke.  Opened in October 2015, the Thrybergh scheme included a specially designed passage to enable salmon, other fish and eels to swim upstream.  Mark Simon, Chief Executive of Yorkshire Hydropower that developed the Thrybergh scheme said: “It’s fantastic to see salmon at Aldwarke, so soon after our hydro scheme opened.  Whilst generating renewable electricity is our number one priority, we also wanted to see salmon safely navigate upstream on the River Don.  It’s wonderful that they are now doing so, and we hope that we will see a lot more fish up and down the River Don.”
