Last Tuesday, 20 people participated at the meeting in the head office of the Federation. The following agencies were represented: the departemental water policing (DDT 55), the french agency for biodiversity (AFB), the Water Agency Rhin Meuse, the EPTB of Meuse (EPAMA), the local authorities, Voies Navigables de France (VNF), GSM society, the French UICN, the local fishing association and the federation of fishing and protection of the aquatic environment.
Project presentation was made by Sébastien CORMONT and it has been well received by all the partners. Following this presentation, they exchanged views on these subjects:
- the grassland exploitation modalities by the farmer when the works will be finished,
- the soil extraction and the export operations,
- ecologic land use management next the works,
- and the possibilities to develop the project for other species (besides pike and mud loach).
These constructive exchanges will allow the Federation to prepare the draft. This document will be necessary to ask for subsidies and to obtain the authorization to do the works.
