New carp in Lake 5
We have finally had one of the new carp caught.
There were signs of stress with the fish having white spots on fins and body.
We have previously spoken to the EA about this and they said it is common with newly moved fish,
due to handling damage, the stress of the move and acclimatising to a new environment.
There is no cause for alarm unless we start getting fatalities.
The fact the fish was feeding is a good sign.
It would be great if you could let us know if you catch one of the new fish, healthy or otherwise.
A photo would be very useful.
