Cuttle Mill Pools, the Midlands - Fishery Polluted with Milk

Cuttle Mill Milk Pollution

Fish Legal (as the ACA) secured a settlement for one of its commercial fishery members.   After terse negotiations, insurers paid out £3,500 to compensate Cuttle Mill Carp Fishery for the damage they suffered following pollution with milk over the Christmas period back in 2006.  


The milk, which spilt from a tanker in a nearby haulage yard, entered the fishery via a feeder stream.  The oxygen levels in the receiving water fell dangerously low and, despite the best efforts of the fishery owner to limit the damage using bunding and aerators, large specimen carp and a number of roach were lost.  The timing could not have been worse for the fishery which had to close at what is usually one of its busiest times of year with anglers hoping to escape for a peaceful days fishing over the festive season.
