Sadly many of these taking place up and down the county Crying or Very sad 

From the EA:

Several issues with low oxygen levels on canals and still waters recently.  Yesterday we were called to the Basingstoke Canal …

The West Thames fisheries team carried out a fish rescue on the Basingstoke Canal at West Byfleet yesterday after local anglers rang our emergency hotline. Over two thousand fish were rescued from a section of the canal where duck weed covered the surface causing low oxygen levels. Our team found a number of fish already dead under the weed.

Fish species such as roach, pike, tench, perch and bream were captured by electrofishing and transported in an oxygenated tank to a clear section of the canal with higher oxygen levels.

Good work by the West Thames EA guys

Fair play to the EA for doing as much as they could and saving a number of fish as well.
