  1. I am afraid that the monetary aspect of modern carping fueled by a must catch mentality means that these activities will get more and more common as the money to be made is too great to turn down ( legal or not). unfortunately the carp may pay the price!!!
  2. thank you, at least someone else can see the problem, but how do fisheries think that stocking 70 x doubles (700lb) plus some bigger fish, will lead to health, growth and disease resistance. those figures are per acre and do not allow for any other fish species and can be found in many carp water advertising. ps fishing a lovely pit with natural carp to mid 30's at the moment and best of all its very quiet. proper carping
  3. am I the only one who happens to have concerns over the stocking levels in many carp waters, Defra figures suggest that 750lb per acre are at the top end and the stocks may be liable to rapid transfer of disease, also I would think that low oxygen levels could also cause big mortalities. I appreciate that more fish equals more runs ( with any luck) and that is what we all want BUT how can fisheries justify 50,60,70 or even 80 fish per acre!! any thoughts anyone.
