    Default Sea trout and sea lice

    Google Translate

    The above link, with video, discusses the recent finding, by Norwegian marine scientists, that sea trout are fleeing unseasonably into fresh water, apparently to rid themselves of sea lice infestations. Not good news, since they don't feed in fresh water, and are usually much-weakened by the said infestations before they enter the rivers.

    I hear rumours the Irish Fisheries minister is eager to increase the amount of

    fish farming around the Irish Republic, by large factors/ amounts,

    and one of the ideal locations is the west of Ireland around Galway ?...

    apparently we are not, as an island nation, exploiting an obvious industry...

    So ! what part of the river has the "game" angler nominated as a sanctuary for all

    fish?. The spawning streams/ rivers ? the headwaters ? the upper stretches ? the middle

    stretches , the lowers stretches ? the tidal stretches ?.

    I'm not having ago but I don't think that statement is not 100% true. I found that Finnock definitely feed, small sea trout tend to feed and only the larger ones don't feed much/at all.

    Is it an increase in sea lice from fish farming activities>? (my computer won't open the link)

    Further word of the Irish Governments determination to increase greatly the fish farming activity around Ireland and apparently the West coast is a favoured area.

    We appear to be on a coarse of total destruction of natural coastal fishing .

    Large sea trout are regularly caught in fresh water in Loch Wester Caithness, so I would say they do feed, but probably don't much because they tend to run at the end of the season when they are running to breed. After breeding in the autumn all trout slow down for the winter. As for fish returning to the river for clensing I would suggest this may be a natural function?

    Born out of of sheer last-ditch desperation rather than a natural function, methinks. The sealice-loaded ones spotted in fresh water are likely to be those at the thin edge of the wider wedge of wild seatrout stocks which perish unseen at sea.

    Bruce Sandison's column in FF&FT is always worth the read although I rather doubt if he'll ever get a gong for his loyal decades of vocal opposition to the fake salmon industry which everyone except the producers themselves and our Scottish Government knows has disgracefully wrecked wild salmon and seatrout stocks in NW Scotland. Brucie delivers broadsides in the latest July issue, to the SSPO and to SNH......you know, the quango whose oft-quoted slogan is "Working with Scotland's people to care for our natural heritage". Aye, right!

    He also brings our attention to Marine Harvest's entry into the 'altruistic' Community Benefit Funding game already employed by the renewable energy companies, namely handing out substantial grants to local communities where major and numerous new fish farms are being proposed. In return for no favours, naturally. Aye, right yet again.

    Methinks so too. It's desperation, and it's too late for most pictured in that video. Their condition and weight is desperately poor.

    As for the 'altruistic' side of things - sick joke. As Henry Kissinger said: "We don't have friends, we have interests."
