Fish Pass – Darley Abbey

Film produced by Media19 for The Trent Rivers Trust about the design, development, construction and installation of the fish pass at Darley Abbey. The Larinier fish pass enables a diverse range of fish species to move upstream to find suitable river habitat for feeding and spawning. The design and construction of the fish pass was a complex process taking into account many environmental issues with the core aim of improving fish passage and the river habitats upstream of the existing weir at Darley Abbey. The design and construction also had to ensure the heritage value of the weir and the surrounding area was not adversely affected. Darley Abbey weir forms part of the Derwent Valley Heritage Site along with many other important historic mills and weirs along the river.

The fish pass was built using a grant provided by Defra under the Catchment Restoration Fund. It was designed by FISHTEK Ltd in Totnes and completed in partnership and with support from the Environment Agency, Derby City Council and Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site.
