Mid Kent Fisheries - Fish Health Checks
A comprehensive range of health checks required under UK legislation during fish relocation is offered by Mid Kent Fisheries.
Freshwater parasites can damage the health of fish and some are so severe they can wipe out valuable stocks, so health checks are a vital investment to prevent cross-contamination of inland waters. Fish have to be health checked before they can be moved under section 30 of the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries Act 1975.
The Environment Agency stipulates that 30 fish of each species must be dissected to check for parasites to provide a representative sample.
We provided health checks during the relocation of fish out of the path of the new Channel Tunnel Rail Link through Kent and also for many other Councils and Trusts, celebrities and private individuals.
We are one of the few teams qualified in electro fishing. This comprises passing a current through the water, momentarily stunning the fish which float to the surface where they can be collected. Alternatively, a seine net is spread across the bottom of the lake or pond and gathered in.
We design, project manage
