Dee INNS Project Delivery Partners

The Dee INNS project Delivery Partners are the organisations, groups and individuals behind the delivery of our work. They are involved in active INNS management, surveys and recording and awareness raising and are the backbone of our project.



The Welsh Dee Trust were instrumental in driving the development of the DINNS Project and have continued to work tirelessly to achieve the aims of the project. One of the main roles of the Trust is to coordinate the actions of the river Dees many angling clubs and since 2009 they have been working with these organisations to control and record INNS within the catchment.
