River Clyde Carp SurveyPublished on April 9, 2019
We recently surveyed the River Clyde for carp.
The survey looks at sites with ideal carp habitat around Bothwell and Hamilton. The aim is to make sure there are no carp in the River Clyde. We have done the survey every year since we fist found carp in lakes Crescent and Sorell in 1995.
We surveyed three sites on the River Clyde using backpack electro fishers:
- The Nant Bridge
- Bothwell sewage works; and
- The Hamilton Weir.
- 27 redfin perch;
- 36 tench;
- 35 brown trout;
- 60 eels; and
And importantly, no carp!
