Carp in The Fisheries first pond

Members are requested to remove any TRUE CARP, (NOT CRUCIAN'S) which are caught from the first pond at the Fisheries and release them into the second pond.

If you could also weigh them and inform either the Chairman, the Head Bailiff or the Secretary of any such captures and their weight, that would be very helpful.


The reason behind this is that the Fisheries Management Team wish to improve the environment for Crucian's (and to a lesser extent Tench, Roach and Rudd) in the first pond. Common Carp not only compete for food against other species but also readily cross-breed with Crucian Carp - a situation which will eventually lead to the demise of the True Crucian population in the pond!
