Weekly update

Have you seen a lamprey? Tell us about it!

May 12th, 2017 | by

Anglers are being asked to help in recording some of our rarest fish. Ireland has 4 species of lamprey – the sea lamprey, river lamprey, brook lamprey, and the dwarf sea lamprey – a landlocked and smaller version that is found in some of our lakes. Inland Fisheries Ireland and University College Dublin are collaborating on a research project on these species, and your help is needed!

See the information below – if you see lampreys or evidence of lampreys, please let us know by emailing your report to rarefishreporter@gmail.com. More info on the species and how you can get involved is available at www.ucd.ie/rarefishreporter

Many anglers have already been helpful, and a big thank you to the organisers and anglers at the major pike competition on Lough Derg recently, who were very interested in the project.
