next we will be getting told to keep windows closed at all times incase they get into our fish tanks,
To me that statement graham scholey made just proves they are not interested in our side of things, they are just willing to turn a blind eye to it and let the otters run wild till there is nothing left!

I read this earlier today


The Dorset Wildlife Trust has issued a warning to householders about the threat and suggests one option would be to keep frogs and newts instead of expensive fish, or protect ponds with metal grids.

Spokesman Clive Martin said: ‘Otters have discovered that breakfast, lunch and dinner is provided by ponds.’

Graham Scholey, of the Environment Agency, warned that otters are protected and anyone attempting to kill, harm or disturb them can be fined £5,000 or jailed for six months.

You will see something in the not too distant future mate...its a very complex issues and very time consuming.

one of the reasons this issue is so slow on the up take I would suspect is because its appears that its only one part of angling kicking up a fuss.....and that's carp anglers

Ken Townley warned of this pending disaster in Carp World at least 14 years ago (Is it that long ago Ken!)

Stop, Jim. You are making me feel old!

But yes, it was 17 years ago that we found our first confirmed otter kill on a local club lake. Sadly it was - as is often the case - the biggest fish in the lake, one I had caught in 1979 at a (then) PB weight.

As you say, you can lead a horse etc etc...
