River macroinvertebrate data for 2005 and 2006
Family level and species level data from river monitoring stations across Scotland
Sites across Scotland on main rivers, selected to provide a representative assessment of water quality in those rivers.
Data subject to both internal analytical quality control (AQC) and to external audit, and to conformance with SEPA quality system. Further inform is available from SEPA Ecology Units
3-minute kick sampling method as routinely employed for water quality monitoring by the agency. The sampling method is designed to capture a representative sample of benthic macroinvertebrates from the riffle areas of rivers. It is non quantitative. The samples are routinely analysed to family level for most macroinvertebrate families. Further details of the sampling method, equipment used etc. are available from SEPA Ecology Units
