This report covers the upstream movement of 1,719 salmon in the River Leven during the year 1965. An analysis of river levels taken at hourly intervals from April to November 1965 correlated to fish movement at the exact river level when fish moved is provided. The report concludes that major quantities of water from the Rivers Lune and Leven can be made available for domestic and industrial supply without harming the fisheries.
