This project began in summer 2017 and will look at removing an outdated weir along Claxton Beck to improve water flow and fish migration and movement in partnership with the Tees Rivers Trust and the Environment Agency.

Beach areas will be created along the River Skerne to improve access to this river and facilitate its use as an outdoor classroom and volunteers will be recruited and trained to monitor the seasonal movement of elvers and silver eels along the lower Tees. Young people will be engaged as part of an angling programme linked to a local angling club; working closely with schools will help with a general decline in angling club membership.
