Fish Stocking - Middle Pound

Sunday, 30 January 2022

BCAA took delivery of fish from the Environment Agency's Calverton fishery located in Nottingham on Monday 24th January, Guy Pessel, Adrian Hill and Matt Sampson were on hand to carry the fish the short distance from the Truck to the Pound.  The fish were all stocked into the Middle Pound section of the canal, a total of 2,000 fish comprising 500 roach, 500 bream, 500 rudd, 250 crucians and 250 tench.  All the fish survived the journey and a week later we can report there have been no fatalities so a highly successful stocking.  The fish were given free of charge after the Association submitted and won a bid as part of the EA's national campaign to support the development of local club run fisheries.  Thanks go to Sally Gallop at the EA for organising and Nick the EA driver for the long hual journey to Bude, and to Peter Wonnacott for allowing the truck to park on his drive.
