Distressed Fish Due To Recent Weather Conditions
Hot weather combined with low rainfall can make fatal conditions for fish, while heavy intense rain also leads to an increase in diffuse pollution as result of pollutants washed off roads, sewerage systems and from agricultural land.
Rapid changes in water conditions mean that there is little time for fish to acclimatise and oxygen levels in the water can become dangerously low, meaning that fish are at risk of suffocating or becoming more prone to stress and disease.
Any member that finds any signs of fish distress on our waters, are to inform the club immediately.
Please contact any member of the committee, bailiff or warden, all numbers are in your handbook.
