Another serious pollution and fish kill!!

Dead fish on the affected stretch of the River Llynfi, mid-Wales

Fish Legal is currently advising its members Gwent Angling Society in respect of a major pollution that has hit the River Llynfi in mid-Wales. Literally the day after the last touches were carried out to a remediation project that saw the river put on the road to recovery after a devastating pollution in 2016, yet another wave of pollution saw the obliteration of fish and river life for at least 5 kilometers.

The cause of the latest incident has not yet been confirmed by Natural Resources Wales who are investigating, but what is beyond doubt is the terrible and deadly effect on this Welsh tributary of the River Wye, with tens of thousands of dead brook lamprey, grayling and trout among the casualties.
