However, a paper titled Anglers’ Riverfly Monitoring Initiative (ARMI): A UK-wide citizen science project for water quality assessment, authored by Riverfly Partnership Chair, Stephen J. Brooks, ARMI Project Manager, Ben Fitch, FBA Honorary Research Fellow, John Davy-Bowker, and aquatic ecologist, Soraya Alvarez Codesal, was published in a Citizen Science special edition of the journal Freshwater Science in June 2019.
 
This paper demonstrates the effectiveness of ARMI as a structured citizen science program in enhancing the environmental protection of rivers, shows how ARMI complements the work of statutory authorities, and describes how ARMI promotes community engagement with river environments.
