INFORMATION TO MEMBERS REGARDING THE DAVE
CROOKES FISHERY AT HUNSTRETE.
The complex will close on Friday 20th January and re-open the following Thursday to allow for micro-chalking of all three lakes which is a proven method of combating unwanted silt and micro-organisms etc and does not harm fish in any way.
A netting of Main Lake will be performed to ascertain what stock levels of all fish are now present and also to reduce the biomass by removing small silver fish, which is a recommended way of reduction of stress to fish stocks.
To assist these operations, the water level on Main Lake will be reduced.
Due to the recent outbreak of KHV, restrictions are in place on any works carried out especially with regards to fish stocks and fish movement. As a result of this and by order of CEFAS, any stock no longer required has to be disposed of onsite.
As the complex is closed for health and safety reasons during the period stated, members are reminded no access is granted to the complex and cooperation in this matter is much appreciated.
Finally, on behalf of the Bathampton A.A. Management Committee, a big thank you to all of our members for their support and I wish you all a Prosperous New Year.
BAA General Secretary.
