Riverfly monitoring

The Anglers’ Riverfly Monitoring Initiative (ARMI) has been established throughout the UK since 2007 and is coordinated by the Riverfly Partnership. Anglers and conservation volunteers from more than 100 partner organisations carry out regular freshwater invertebrate surveys to check for severe changes in water quality. The ARMI network continues to develop a high level of coverage across UK river systems and, coupled with a high survey frequency, works in partnership with all of the UK’s relevant authorities to: protect the water quality of our rivers, further the understanding of riverfly populations and to conserve riverfly habitats.

Our next FREE training day is on Saturday 21st July 9.30am – 5pm at Stadhampton Village Hall, Oxfordshire

This workshop is aimed at those who wish to start riverfly monitoring for the first time, or for those who wish to refresh old skills.
This one day course provides comprehensive training in the Angler’s Riverfly Monitoring Initiative survey technique and includes presentations, practical demonstrations and active involvement by participants at the riverside. Supported by a comprehensive written guide to the methodology and post-course support from the tutors, you will be shown how to monitor the health of your local river.
