Mr Richard Maxwell Coventry – Trustee

I have lived in north Wales near a tributary of the Clwyd and not too far from the Conwy for over twenty years now and during that time I have taken a keen interest in the ecology of these rivers and the wildlife which they support. I am the treasurer of the Conwy Valley Fisheries & Conservation Association and help to represent that river in Local Fishery Group meetings with the Environment Agency Wales. I collate the fishing and wildlife observations made on the Junction Pool of the Clwyd and the Elwy and I write a monthly column in Trout & Salmon magazine about the Conwy. I have a particular interest in the now very rare migratory smelt (sparling) in the Conwy, as well as the few remaining colonies of Freshwater Pearl Mussels in that river. I am a member of the Mammal Society, the Grayling Society, the Wild Trout Trust and am a founder member of the Welsh Rivers Preservation Society. I was very pleased to become a trustee of the Clwyd & Conwy Rivers Trust at its formation and have every hope that this Trust will have a major benefit on the ecology of these rivers.
