Dr Graeme Harris (1945-2023)

Everyone at Afonydd Cymru were saddened to hear of the recent passing of Dr Graeme Harris, one of the leading authorities on sea trout in Britain.

A graduate from Liverpool University, Graeme’s PhD involved pioneer research into sea trout in Wales. The large part of his career was spent with the Welsh Water Authority in senior fisheries positions. He was also Chair of the Environment Agency Wales’s Fisheries, Ecology and Recreation Advisory Committee.

Despite a long illness, Graeme had continued to work in fisheries science. The upcoming IFM Sea Trout Symposium, which he was helping to organise, will be dedicated to him.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
