There are probably thousands of simple projects in the Nore and Suir catchment which can improve the spawning and nursery conditions for migratory and local fish.

Clearing excessive growth will let  light into fast flowing riffles, encourage in-stream plant growth and foster insect (ie. food) life.

Stream stabilisation will reduce the negative effects of bank and soil erosion.
