Otter Predation

Otter fencing & predator management.

Given the limited actions that can be taken to protect a recreational stillwater fishery against otters, we know the importance of designing and erecting fences that are fully effective and reliable. Fences also have associated benefits such as deterring poachers and a variety of other animals, good fencing is a robust bio-security barrier.

Mink, now established throughout the UK, has not been perceived as a serious threat until recently, perhaps because they remain largely elusive and, as they are largely nocturnal it is extremely unlikely they are seen taking fish. We will advise, design and install systems to mitigate the increasing problem of mammalian predation on recreational fisheries or sanctuaries that need protection both above and below the waterline.
