Electro fishing of canals

The Canal & River Trust will be carrying out electro fishing for the removal of non-native fish species from the canal network this winter.

Our fisheries contractor (MEM Fisheries) will be undertaking the works on our behalf. The works will commence from the end November 2021 through to the end of March 2022.

The works will be undertaken on the Worcester & Birmingham canal, Coventry canal, Birmingham & Fazeley canal and Trent & Mersey canal and will include waters in which your club controls the fishing on.
