Wood End Farm / Re: Crucian transfer
« Last post by A Coppell on July 10, 2019, 09:53:56 am »
Dont think youll be able to move fish now till the winter. Do we have any idea how big they are now? Be good if the club could supplement this stocking and purchase some more. Its been a few years since the club spent any funds stocking waters excluding the syndicate at Twin Lakes.

Wood End Farm / Crucian transfer
« Last post by M Ingram on July 08, 2019, 06:20:32 pm »
Paul,
Quite a few members are wondering when the planned transfer of crucians from the stock pond to willow will take place. Conditions look good at the moment.

Wood End Farm / Re: carp 'pox'at alder ???
« Last post by SPrescott on May 12, 2017, 11:33:36 pm »
reply to my own post  -after a bit of research

according to the ea site this cyprinid disease -more unsightly than horrifically damaging- can be contagious to other cyprinids  ie bream , other carp, rudd and crucians

as i am far from being knowledgeable on this disease i ask the obvious question...are the club really going to risk even one fish possibly incubating this disease put in  north lake with its easy access into the south lake's expensive big carp ???

It is certainly possible that transmission will occur if infected fish are introduced. The lesions can also cause problems with secondary infection, which is something not to risk if fish are financially valuable, but usually pox is just an aesthetic issue. I don't know many who'd knowingly engaging in transfer of infected stock with any disease, but the weighing up of the pros and cons are a management issue. With the virus being so very common it is possible some carp in the South Lake are already carriers anyway.

This was reported to the biologist that carried out the initial health check, I have copied his reply below:

"The infection is actually caused by cyprinid herpesvirus-1. The condition causes characteristic white waxy lumps on the skin and fins, which are easily observed with the naked eye. Although they may look unsightly, they have little effect on the host fish. It has only very rarely been recorded as causing any significant problems apart from the unappealing look of the lesions. These lesions disappear as the water temperature rises, leaving clear, apparently undamaged skin behind. However, once infected, fish may develop the characteristic lumps year after year."

Further, he advised that there is no issue in continuing with the transfer of fish.

That said, as we are now into the warm weather and spawning season, the stock transfer will be put on hold.

Wood End Farm / carp 'pox'at alder ???
« Last post by R Cooney on May 05, 2017, 04:40:30 pm »
i understand there is carp 'pox' at alder - per on site advice today

1) do we have to do anything individually - like extra disinfecting etc etc plse ?

2) presumably this 'kyboshes' the plans to transfer carp to north lake at twin lakes  - even though the netting was aborted this week at alder will transfer be stopped ?

many thanks

belated thanks to eddie taylor

 who went round every peg at the end of last week on alder with his medieval 'pikes and billhooks' to cut away rushes round the stages etc etc 

a totally sterling and mainly thankless job by a complete clubman

no - he didn't pay me to say this as i had never met him before .... but what a great effort !!!!!

i had a go with the giant alloy rake on willow this morning  - which i assume is eddie's handiwork  ?
