Salmon have been returning to the River Mersey system in ever increasing numbers since 1999.
Here is a short video showing a few short (but great) clips from November 2015 of Salmon attempting one of the many barriers they face on their journey upstream to find suitable spawning habitat.
There is much more we can add (both written and in pictures) to the Mersey Salmon story – and we will update this page in the near future giving much more information
For now – please enjoy this short film made by Documentary Film students from Salford University
and here is a cracking photo taken by a local blogger showing a salmon leaping the weir at Roman Lakes – its a 12ft jump and most fish just cant make it.
