Share this post

James Symonds joined the staff of the Spey Fishery Board on the 1st March 2018. James is the new Project Officer for the SISI project, covering the Spey, Findhorn, Nairn and Lossie catchments, so he is going to be busy!

James brings a wealth of experience to this role and we look forward to implementing the variety of invasive species  control measures set out within the programme. The project will involve the control and management of mink and invasive plants such as Giant Hogweed and Himalayan balsam by contractors and volunteers. In addition, approaches to riparian restoration will be tested along the banks of the Fiddich where White Butterbur has become totally dominant. If you’d like to get involved in the control of these invasive species then please contact James at the Spey Fishery Board office.

James will be working work as part of a team for the Scottish Invasive Species Initiative (SISI), a four-year partnership  project in northern Scotland led by Scottish Natural Heritage and involving many fishery boards and trusts and the University of Aberdeen. SISI is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and Scottish Natural Heritage.
