Electro Fishing Survey

Here are a few photographs from yesterdays electric fishing the Lower Water to assess the fish population.

Casterbridge Fisheries Ltd. fished 100m in an upstream direction and retained every fish they caught (apart from minor species) they then measured and recorded species including all juveniles, returning them before fishing the next stretch. The results will build up a picture of the whole population including recruitment, which is very important.

Full results will be published to Members in due course, but visual results are more than encouraging – one 100m had to be shortened because of the amount of fish!!! (best brown was 50cm/20in!!!
