Here is what Jamie McCready had to say about Week 2 work experience
“Our second week at Hampshire Carp Hatcheries has continued as the last one finished; manic! I think I have handled more fish this week than in the rest of my life. Early morning starts are the order of the day to ensure all of the orders are sorted, counted and boxed up ready to go.
When we are not sending fish out the door, we are in the ponds, netting and grading to keep the cages topped up with all of the size ranges that we have to sell. At the start of every day we are out there checking the fish’s welfare, water quality monitoring and whenever we have a free minute we carry out health checks to ensure all fish arrive at our customers in top condition. Being so busy makes the days fly by – may the good weather continue!”
