GH reported that brood stock collection had been
difficult in winter 2019 and that there had been a
shortage of cock fish.
Despite the slow start 28,000 eggs had been laid down
and hatching was progressing well
He noted that 30% of the alevins were stocked out into
side streams under artificial redds. Monitoring of these
sites later in the season had showed high densities of
fry – attesting to the success of the method.
GH noted that the Lynher hatchery was run solely by
volunteers and the provision of the site by N Lintott was
highly appreciated. The work of the secretary (A White)
was also highlighted.
Financial donations were critical to the continued
existence of the hatchery. He thanked LDAC for their
generous financial donations in supporting the hatchery
and urged Club members to join the Lynher River
Association (£10.00 pa) thereby helping to further
finance the activity.
