It is not expected to have any fish count figures for the River Coquet in 2009.

Coquet Fish Counters  News Update January 2009

Due to difficulties experienced during the exceptional flooding of September 2008, the Coquet fish counters are currently supplying limited data. One of the counters was destroyed during the flood event and the other is providing only a partial count. As a result we are currently not posting the fish counts for the River Coquet until both counters are fully operational again. This is likely to be around March 2009.

        * Wear counter out of service from 22 June to 26 July 2007 so those figures represent part months totals

SOUTH PASS UPDATE, 3rd JANUARY 2008: from the Environment Agency re Coquet Counters.

Recent high river flows have caused substantial damage to our fish counting ramp and electrodes at the south pass at Warkworth on the Coquet. As a result, the fish counter for the south pass is not currently recording fish passage.We are arranging removal of the debris to ensure free passage for migratory fish and will replace the counting ramp and electrodes as soon as possible. We will post an update on this page when the works have been completed. In the meantime, fish counts for the north pass remain unaffected, and will be posted as soon as available.
23 September The latest figures up until 31 August.

19August The figures for June and July for the Tyne and Coquet are now to hand. There are no figures for the Wear. Rumour hath it that the Framwellgate counter is again out of service but no official explanation has been obtained.

Note: River Tyne Kielder Release Schedule available on 01434 240463
