Fish stocking

20th October 2011

Today the Society stocked some CARP into BALCOMBE LAKE.

Total weight stocked was approx 352lb.

Which meant there were about 55 fish ranging between 5lb – 10lb.

The majority were in the 6 – 8lb bracket and there were a couple around the 10lb mark.

These fish were added to introduce new genes into the breeding pool !!!

We also had to buy this size to help avoid predation by cormorants !!

Plus we hope they grow and mature a bit quicker than the local stock !
