Fish Counts

The table below shows the monthly combined upstream counts for salmon and sea trout at the Environment Agency fish counters at Framwellgate weir in Durham. The first counter began operation in November 1994 and a second counter on a new fish pass started operating in February 2015. Figures from February 2015 onwards represent a combined count from both counters. This document will be updated regularly but data may not be the latest calendar month. Please acknowledge the Environment Agency if quoting any of the figures.
