Fisheries Management - A core activity for A.G.A. Group
The division covers such aspects of fishery management as water quality analysis, fish health examinations, nutritional requirements and stocking programmes. Fish health and stock assessments are essential elements of good fishery management and the A.G.A Group aquatic consultants are on hand to carry out examinations and analysis. Stock assessments are carried out by our trained operatives using either seine netting or electro-fishing methodologies, or often a combination of both depending on the site. The health examinations are carried out in accordance with Section 30 criteria and protocol of the Salmon & Freshwater Fisheries Act 1975. These examinations are required by current legislation before fish are stocked into the 'wild' fishery system.
