Thousands of fish saved from salt water during tidal surge

Post by Miles » January 18th, 2019, 10:50 pm

Steve Lane, fisheries technical specialist, said:

If we had not closed the barrier, there is no doubt we would have had to carry out a significant fish rescue and it is likely there would have been some fish deaths. Thankfully Environment Agency teams worked together to take action when this salt water surge occurred.

We are continually grateful to Herbert Woods boat yard for their assistance and understanding in operating the barrier, and also to the private boat owners for their co-operation and help to protect the fish. We would also like to thank the anglers who have been out checking in the last few days to see if there have been any fish in distress.

This does a fantastic job, why a similar thing would not be done at acle bridge which would save many more as well as flooding prevention, salt got above ludham bridge and up to horning in this surge!
