Inland Fisheries investigates dead fish find at Loughrea Lake

Published

on

Inland Fisheries Ireland is investigating following the discovery of dead fish in Loughrea Lake yesterday.

Initial investigations suggest it’s a natural phenomena involving course fish only and is unlikely to be related to water quality.

Staff from Inland Fisheries Ireland went to Loughrea Lake yesterday after being alerted to the discovery of dead fish.

Upon inspection, they recovered approximately 100 dead perch.

No other species are involved.

Inland Fisheries Ireland is currently investigating the cause of the fish kill, which may be due to natural causes.

Samples have been taken and sent for laboratory analysis.

A spokesperson told Galway Bay fm news that the perch spawning season has just finished, and in some years there is post-spawning mortality associated with spawning stress and immune system disruption which can cause infection.

As no other species has been affected, it’s understood this is the most likely cause in this incident, and it is unlikely to be related to water quality.
