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?

Our Kyle certainly gets about doesn't he?  I remember him at the time of the scottish symposium when people weren't quite sure whether he was actually appearing on behalf of Aber. university or the E.A.

Shock and horror.  There is an article in this months Trout and Salmon magazine which highlights a hatchery in Devon which as they suggest 'bucks the trend' and actually seems to work.   What a surprise.

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.
