Last one promise!! Once the fish reach a certain size they are then placed in outside ponds in mixed species as found in nature and left to grow on naturally. It's been found that they grow bigger and healthier than trying to artificially simulate the environment.
Fish are humanly netted from various rivers just before spawning time and kept in holding tanks. When nature says the time is right the eggs and sperm are harvested and fertilised via a non-invasive method. The fish are returned to their location of capture and the eggs are monitored and grow. In the wild a clutch of eggs has 1-2% survival rate. This way it's 80-90%!!
Spent the day learning about how a fish farm works. Fascinating time. All fish are native species and reared for a maximum of 2 years before being released into our rivers and lakes. This is all paid for by your rod licenses!!! So if you fish and want your fish stocks healthy pay your fee!
When you've got a big old heavy stick of wet poplar to get out of the watercourse up a bank. A bore hole, 2 capstan winches, and multiple pulley blocks, help get the job done and way better on your body than a tirfor winch. #forestry#winching#husqvarna
Small tea spoon made out of a waste piece of birch with small amount of burr in it so couldn't throw it away. Occlusion in it was weak and brittle which basically cracked and fell out during drying. Rather than throw the spoon out I'm gonna try and use a clear filler and make it a feature of the spoon. #bushcraft#spooncarving
