Hello,
I am after advice on the above, as I have been asked to look after a small natural water, aNd was wondering if there are any online sites that may guide a newcomer. There is nothing wrong with the water in fact it is quite healthy, it has a good head of fish and plenty of plant life. I’m just a little worried that I might miss something through lack of knowledge where had I been previously informed or read about it I might have been able to avoid. I might also be jumping the gun and nothing my never happen but I think I would rather know about stuff and it makes it more interesting.

Thanks for looking.

Surely the owner would give you a full briefing of what needs to be done ?

Ask the EA to have a look if you’re worried but most waters do best without our intervention. It’s when we get involved that things go wrong.

Surely if it is a natural water that with no human interference is in good condition then it should be left alone. But I agree that EA and IFM should be good sources of information.
