Fisheries officers will be stocking the Rivers Tees and Wear today, as part of the Environment Agency's plans to to develop and restore rivers in the region.
Thousands of Chub, Dace, Roach, Crucian Carp, Tench, Rudd and Bream will be introduced to the River Tees at Low Conniscliffe and Darlington, and to the River Wear at Maiden Castle.
Six stillwater fisheries in the region will also be stocked with 15,000 Roach, Rudd, Bream, Tench and Crucian Carp to help improve angling.
The Environment Agency releases fish into waterways annually, using data from national fish surveys to identify areas where there are problems with breeding and survival.
Cool summers on the Rivers Wear and Tees have made it more difficult for fish to survive, so the introduction of new stock will help boost dwindling populations.
The fish come from the Environment Agency's fish farm at Calverton in Nottinghamshire, where between 350,000 and 500,000 fish are bred to stock rivers each year.
The victim was walking her dog last month in an area known to locals as 'Black Bobby's Field'.Read the full story ›
