southern water have been told they must reduce water abstraction from the itchen and the test by the ea, so how on earth diverting the river and removing sluice gates will help fresh water drinking supplys is beyond me,i think southampton city council and the ea is being run by people just released from a lunitic asylum

in the past few seasons the lower itchen has had a run of a few sea lampreys I think that they are a protected species altering there habitat could be against the law perhaps English nature should get involved

A friend of mine caught and Lamprey from the lower Itchen a fewer weeks ago whilst fly fishing for sea trout. He said it was incredibly slimy. Needless to say it was foul hooked.
