Restocking the Derwent: 12 September 2009

On Saturday 12 September, the EA relocated around 200 one to three-year-old wild brown trout, around 50 minnows and 30 stone loach from the river above the reservoir to Derwent AA water below the reservoir. No larger fish were relocated as these were approaching spawning time and their removal could have compromised their spawning. Thanks to everyone who helped, including Chris from Derwent Reservoir for supplying the transport and Becs for helping to organise the day.
