Locally extinct fish found again in Bassenthwaite

A fish declared 'locally extinct' more than 10 years ago has been found in Bassenthwaite Lake.

Have your say

Taking the facts from the story-
A population was established in Loch Skeen during the early 2000's using eggs from Bassenthwaite. At the very same time, Bassenthwaites population declined to levels that were up until now undetectable. Is it not highly likely that the removal of eggs from Bassenthwaite has contributed significantly to the decline of these fish to levels where they were thought to be extinct in the lake? When these fish have survived since the last ice age it seems a shame that the intervention of so called naturalists has damaged the population in such a way. If it aint broke.......
