A fishing legacy
THE name Anne Voss-bark is synonymous with West Country rivers and preserving their health; the dedicated fisherwoman (left) and legendary hostess of the Arundell Arms on the edge of Dartmoor was president of Salmon & Trout Conservation UK, which has set up an award in her memory for students of aquatic science. This year’s challenge is a 2,500-word discussion piece on ‘Hatcheries: good or bad for wild fisheries?’.
The successful applicant will spend a week at the Arundell Arms and a week with the West Country Rivers Trust learning about fishery management and water science, starting on September 25.
Last year’s winner, Vicky Fowler, a graduate in biological science from Exeter University, is working towards a PHD and studying with the British Antarctic survey team. Apply to the S&TC UK’S Janina Gray (firstname.lastname@example.org); entries close on May 31. KG
