Ravenfield took delivery of 200, 4 to 6 inch tench, this week from Mainstream Fisheries. The fish, which were in excellent condition, were stocked into stock ponds to grow on. A typical sample is shown in the photograph below.
In addition, and thanks to a grant from the Coalfields Regeneration Trust, to help with the development of Baker’s Pond, 530 tench, similar to the one above, and 530 crucian carp were also introduced into Baker’s.
Samples of the crucians can be seen below.
