PostSubject: Saving the Crucian Carp   Fri Jan 23, 2015 3:11 pm

This upcoming Institute of Fisheries Management evening talk could be very interesting.

Wednesday 4th February 2015 - 7.30pm

Carl Sayer - University College London

The crucian carp is a beautiful small, greeny-gold cyprinid fish. Prior to the 1970s-
80s, crucians were common in eastern England and in Norfolk ‘corner of the corn
field’ crucian fishing became an important part of local culture. But, as agriculture
intensified and ponds were lost and abandoned, crucian populations (and crucian
fishing) have gone the same way, with a steep and widespread decline evident.
Reacting to this the crucian carp was established as a Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP)
species in Norfolk in 2010, and since this time, strong efforts have been made to bring
the species back.

In this presentation Carl will explore the history of the crucian carp in England,
travelling back to the first references of the species. He will highlight the work of the
Norfolk Crucian Carp project, including the hunt for the species based on much rural
detective work, pond restoration approaches and the success of recent crucian reintroductions.

The talk will be held in the Pyramid Room, Department of Geography, King's Building, King's College London, Strand WC2R 2LS
Drinks and Nibbles from 7:00pm

Enter the main entrance to Kings on the Strand, pass through the reception area and
on into the King's (main building) – go along the main corridor past the Great Hall to
the lifts, which are on the left. Take lift to 4th floor and turn left out of lift into the
Geography reception area. Metered parking can be found on Surrey Street.

To the King’s Strand Building:
– 15 mins walk from Waterloo (East) & Mainline and Underground Stations across Waterloo Bridge
OR 15 mins walk from Charing Cross Mainline Station up Strand
OR 15 minutes walk from Blackfriars Station
OR short walk from Temple Underground Station

The only lake in essex where i know of 'true' crucian carp to exsist is the top lake at Rayne Lodge.My PB came out whilst fishing a open match there a few years ago now.3.2. It was wieghed separatley at my request.On another open match the Angling Times photograther was there Mick Rouse to do a feature on the crucian and Tony the owner asked all the match anglers to retain their crucian at the end for one staged photo.So when I see a photo in the angling rags of all the fish facing neating the the same direction I always think of this.
