Fish stocking figures

Fisheries in the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs (DAERA) Public Angling Estate are stocked with fish from Movanagher Fish Farm. The fish stocking table below is updated when monthly stocking has been confirmed.

Fish stock size and weight

These waters will be stocked with takeable fish larger that 25.4cm and an average weight greater than 300 grams. DAERA Inland Fisheries tries to make sure that these waters are stocked regularly depending on their quota, however they are not stocked on a monthly basis.

The department cannot give any further information about stocking over the telephone, in particular future stocking information.  However you can email DAERA Inland Fisheries about stocking.

Fish stocking archive from July 2017

Due to high temperatures and anticipated reduced oxygen levels in many waters, there was no stocking of DAERA waters during July 2017. This decision was taken in the interests of fish health. This decision will not affect the annual fish stocking programme and waters are expected to receive their quota of allocated fish in the 2017 calendar year.
