Rediscovered: Tees Barrage European Eel Trail, World Fish Migration Day

Our European eels complete an epic migration from the Sargasso Sea near Mexico to the River Tees.

Why not follow this life cycle on our Tees Barrage European Eel trail and fill in an activity sheet on Saturday 21st April for World Fish Migration Day? We also have a drawing competition for those who take part in our trail, with a selection of the best drawings appearing on our Facebook page.

The event at the Tees Barrage (being run in partnership by the Canal and Rivers Trust, River Tees Rediscovered and the Tees Rivers Trust) will include the Tees Rivers Trust and River Tees Rediscovered showing off some of the latest eel arrivals from the barrage eel pass and the Canal and Rivers Trust giving presentations about fish migration and the Tees Barrage.

So why not come down and learn about this fantastic species!

Rediscovered: The R-eel Story of the European Eel, World Fish Migration Day 21st April 2018.

The European Eel is a critically endangered species and it is well known by those who spend their time near the River Tees that numbers have declined. European eels undertake an epic migration, which we will be highlighting during a World Fish Migration Day event at the Tees Barrage in partnership with River Tees Rediscovered and the Canal & Rivers Trust.

We want to hear your stories of eels on the Tees. Have you noticed a declined? Have your parents or grandparents told you stories of times where eels were abundant around the Tees? If you have a story we want to hear it.

The information you provide could be part of our bigger campaign to raise awareness of the European eel decline and inform where we monitor for eels in the future.

Leave us a comment or message us to give further information. We want people talking about this interesting but poorly understood species.

If you want to help with this years elver monitoring programme please let us know via messenger. This pilot programme will start with a training day for all volunteers and practise monitoring with Tees Rivers Trust staff.

We can't wait to hear your stories!

😱 oh no. Don’t think T cut will get that out

Wow!

Do we know how it happened?

No, but I'm guessing that whoever was in the white one was possibly going a tad over 30mph and didnt notice the cars parked on the side of the road!

BEN!

Not having much luck in the car department !

Rediscovered: Tees Tidy Up Plastic Bottle Award

At the beginning of the Tees Tidy Up we announced that we were waging a war against discarded plastic bottles and challenged participants in the Tees Tidy Up to collect the most plastic bottles.

Finally, all the numbers are in and we have our Plastic Bottle Award winner.

The winner of the Tees Tidy Up Plastic Bottle Award is Sembcorp Power!

They waged an almighty war against the plastic bottle on the Wilton Site and collected a whole van full of plastic bottles, estimated to be around 1000! It isn't hard to believe when you look at the pre-pick pictures!

Well done to all of the Sembcorp Power volunteers that took part in the Tees Tidy Up and thank you for all of your hard work!

Rediscovered: Tees Tidy Up Strangest Object Award

Congratulations to Northumbrian Water!

This video demonstrates perfectly why Northumbrian Water have been named the Winner of the Tees Tidy Up Strangest Object Competition!

Northumbrian Water employees and volunteers took part in two days of litter picking at Hemlington Lake and Cocker Beck. Congratulations to everyone who took part in the litter pick on the day, you all did fantastic work!

There were so many weird and wonderful items found but a collection such as this was pretty shocking. The toilet brush, however, was the decided winner, it might have been helpful for cleaning in the house but it certainly wasn't helping to tidy up the Tees.

Thank you to Northumbrian Water and all of their volunteers for ensuring that these items don't end up as another piece of marine litter!

Check out ten strange objects found on the riverbanks of the Tees! 😳

From a bog brush to tins of paint, just some of the items found during the #TeesTidyUp event organised by River Tees Rediscovered and The Tees Rivers Trust

Local businesses, organisations, community groups and environmentally-conscious individuals joined forces to collect over 600 bags of rubbish, preventing it from entering into our rivers and seas. Fantastic team effort by everyone involved and we're incredibly proud to have played out part. πŸ’™
