Yesterday.

At Whitestown Stream near Tallaght, Dublin.

Save the Poddle’s Wildlife Sanctuary tweeted:

“You won’t find this in a Bord Fáilte advertisement. This is the Whitestown Stream, near Tallaght at the minute. It’s in South Dublin County Council where a lone volunteer struggles to remove the dumped items to help rescue the river.

Ireland’s rivers die under the weight of such neglect.”

Anyone?



‘sup?

Inland Fisheries Ireland is working with the Fish Health Unit in the Marine Institute to sample live salmon in affected rivers to determine the cause of the skin disease.

Until the cause of the disease has been determined and the risk of spreading the disease established, affected salmon should not be removed from the water.

Any anglers who capture salmon with these symptoms are advised to follow normal biosecurity procedures and disinfect tackle, waders and equipment.
