If you plan to do some fishing on your Canal Boat Holiday when cruising the Erewash Canal you will benefit from the recently restored fish stocks.

Thousands of fish are being moved from Caen Hill lock flight on the Kennet And Avon Canal to a stretch of the Erewash Canal in Nottinghamshire.

The operation will benefit aquatic wildlife on the Kennet And Avon Canal and re populate a stretch on the Erewash following a pollution incident in 2012.

The fish, mainly roach, perch and bream were temporarily stunned with a low electric pulse before being carefully netted and transported to Nottinghamshire in special tanks.

Oda Dijksterhuis, ecologist at the Canal and River Trust, explains Species like roach and perch are already in good numbers on the Kennet And Avon Canal so this will not only help to restore the fish population on the Erewash Canal it will also help to maintain biodiversity at Caen Hill.

We take great care of the fish throughout the operation, our specialist fish rescue contractors use a low electric pulse which stuns the fish, they will then be netted and sensitively transferred to their new home.

The fish now being put into the canal will restore and enhance the fish population and ensure a more even spread of fish along the length of the canal .
