Thanks to Dave Harvey who put me in contact with Adrian Bickell from the EA's Fishery team who wanted some assistance with a stocking of dace, chub and barbel on a tiny Thames trib near Windsor this morning. These stockings are generally quite rare and often go unreported, but not this one. The stream in question was choosen to receive these fish after a pollution incident 2 years ago, it's somewhere close to my heart as it was where I caught my first ' proper ' fish as a kid, a 2lb chub. Lovely to see and have the opportunity to help with this. Lets hope the stream is left to run pure and clean so these little fish can thrive. Hopefully I'll catch one of those little barbel in 15 years or so when it's a double Wink .

Here are some pics.

Thanks Duncan, really appreciated.

Great to see the restocking taking place, often goes unnoticed. The stream was hit by pollution a few years ago and this is part of its rejuvination folks Smile

Where do the EA actually source the fish from for these sorts of restockings?

Do they move them from other waterways, or do they have hatcheries and fish farms or something like that?

Interesting, thanks.

Is this the only facility for fish rearing and restocking the EA operates? If so, I wonder what effect the restocking has on genetic diversity/speciation across the UK. And I wopnder where they sourced the original breeders from.

Also, I'd bloody love to drop a little livebait in one of those pools. I bet there is one perch or pike (or eel?) thats snuck in there at some point and grown very very fat!
