Kyle Young of the University of Zurich suggests that we should move fry from abundant places to other tributaries or areas where there are fewer. Is this despite these fry not being genetically suited to the new environment?
Its in C
Its in Cornwall actually with the hatchery, once used for breeding trout for the reservoir, is situated below the dam at Collinford reservoir. The fry are put out in the St Neots river, a tributary of the Fowey. It say Southwest water, the EA and the Fowey rivers association deserve great credit for starting this new project WHICH COULD NOT HAVE GONE AHEAD WITHOUT THE SUPPORT OF THE EA. They are only raised to the fry stage but would like to bring them to the smolt stage. Interesting mainly for the different mind set of the EA that seems to apply depending on where you line in the country
So what exactly is the EA,s policy for gods sake. Support one initiative, shut down another it seems As for support from our own River association -well forget it.
Only 30.000 fry raised in the first year, maximum 40,000 using eight cocks and eight hens.
looks like they are all doing it down there
they even have artificial redds
