IMPORTANT UPDATE – THERE ARE NO SIGNS OF KHV AT SALFORD QUAYS – BUT PLEASE CONTINUE TO BE VIGILANT AND REPORT ANY FISH WHICH YOU MIGHT CONSIDER TO BE IN DISTRESS
Four club members have walked the entire circumference of the Quays this morning (two groups of two). Conditions were perfect for fish spotting.
There are no signs of any fish in distress – there was one small carp dead floating in the corner of Ontario Basin – it had damage and maggots in its gills – highly likely that this fish was the one that was reported to be in distress yesterday..
So – our KHV scare is now hopefully over – please be extra vigilant so that we can respond immediately if there are mulitple fish deaths.
We have no regrets about raising this issue – better to be a PANIC FANNY and take the safety first option – than to ignore issues and hope they go away on their own..
As ever – being vigilant and reporting things is our best defence against disease – the most important way to prevent the transfer of disease is to dry out your nets and tackle between fishing trips !!
The club committee would like to thank the angler who reported this fish in the first place – well done.
A carp was caught today which showed possible symptoms of KHV
We are calling the EA first thing in the morning – and will take things from there………..
However until we are able to provide an update – its best if ALL ANGLERS treat the Quays as though KHV is present…….. please disinfect nets and tackle after use
Lets hope that the fish which was caught showing symptoms today – is located again quickly — will all anglers please keep their eyes skinned and report anything unusual/abnormal to us via firstname.lastname@example.org
Here a pic of the diseased fish which was caught today …
