A pos­si­ble so­lu­tion to the prob­lem of al­gal bloom which has be­set Loch Leven is be­ing pi­o­neered at a fish­ery near Perth. Act­ing on the ad­vice of the Aquatic Weed Re­search Unit, bar­ley straw is be­ing added to Sandy­knowes, Bridge of Earn, with en­cour­ag­ing re­sults. “It costs noth­ing to try and is en­vi­ron­men­tally friendly,” said Mr David Brien, of the fish­ery. Al­though not a ma­jor dif­fi­culty at the fish­ery, and not harm­ful to wildlife, the al­gal bloom de­tracts from its ap­pear­ance.
