Fish and Aquatics

The records are believed to be under-represented. It is hoped that clearing and unblocking the streams, improving the flow and light, and hopefully then flushing through silt will re-introduce optimal habitats and additional aquatic environments. Chalk streams, globally rare and significant, create diverse and highly productive ecosystems. Conservation of the streams will in turn result in boosting the populations of birds and mammals resident or passing through the Fen.
