From 25th October to 3rd November, our Chinese colleagues, funded by the same research award, returned the favour by hosting AMBER’S Professor Carlos Garcia de Leaniz, Professor Sonia Consuegra, Dr. Josh Jones and Dr. Pete Gough on a visit to the Chongqing Institute of Green and Intelligent Technology at the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

The AMBER visitors attended the China-UK Workshop on Adaptive Management of River-reservoir on 28th October at the Key Laboratory of Reservoir Environment. Professor Garcia de Leaniz presented an overview of the AMBER project, Professor Consuegra presented information on eDNA, Dr Jones presented stream fragmentation and citizen science, and Dr. Gough presented information on the World Fish Migration Foundation.

Following attendance at the workshop, the AMBER representatives took part in a three-day cruise down the Three Gorges reservoir from Chongqing to Yichang, stopping at sites of local cultural importance and ending at the Three Gorges Dam project.
