Pond Dipping and Electro-fishing

Examining the catch

Posted: Saturday 3 August, 2013

Thursday 25th July saw perfect weather for our annual Pond Dipping and Electro-fishing event.  Lead by Peter Cunningham, from Wester Ross Fisheries Trust, the group explored the aquatic habitat of the burns and lochans in Laide Wood.  They managed to identify a range of water dwelling creatures, including dragonfly nymphs and water boatmen. 

Peter also demonstrated electro-fishing, using a probe to temporarily immobilise small trout so that they could be measured before being released unharmed back into the burn.  Thanks to Peter Cunningham for an excellent afternoon.
