Vitacress Forum 2015

The theme of this year’s forum was the historical significance of chalk streams and their modern-day management in terms of conservation, fishing and watercress farming.

The Environment Agency outlined their aspirations for improving chalk stream headwaters in Hampshire and the audience heard about research aimed at ensuring sustainable watercress farming. The forum also provided an opportunity for regular updates on the Bourne Rivulet and Upper Itchen initiatives.
