East Anglian rivers receive a boost

by Angling Times |

THOUSANDS of chub, dace, and roach have been released into rivers in Norfolk and Bedfordshire as part of the Environment Agency’s yearly restocking plans.

Each winter, the team from Calverton Fish Farm travel around the country replenishing stocks, and one of the key venues to be stocked on this occasion was Norfolk’s River Thet, where 15,000 roach, dace, and chub between one and two years old were introduced.

The influx of fish is one of many similar stockings the EA is undertaking nationwide to help improve sport.

EA fisheries expert Kye Jerrom said:

“These fish are stocked to help restore natural populations, which supports angling, and rod licence sales help to fund this work.”

We’ll provide a full breakdown of the river stockings in the coming weeks.
