Our 2 summer barbel were stocked into the Ringwood and District Angler’s Association water at Throop fishery earlier this month.
Montoring their success.
Prior to their delivery, 50% of the barbel were anaestetised and injected just under their scales between their pelvic fins with a tiny amount of blue dye.
This dye should remain visible for many years and it will be possible for the club to record how well they grow. Previous monitorings have shown our barbel to reach weights of over 10lbs after just 5 years.
