I have heard about them being there, Also someone seen a bloody Otter on the seven just out side B/North,

Any one got an opinion about Otters being in our river system? Some say they will be hard to see only at night will the fish move on if a Otter is breeding, How will we cope fishing if they get use to us fishing? To me bad days on the river are heading our way if we get infested with Otters. Lovely creatures what they are, But can be a menace to us.

If people concentrated on the really important things in life, there'd be a shortage of fishing poles.

quote:Any one got an opinion about Otters being in our river system?

Otters are an indiginouse species to our river systems,whose declining numbers were brought to an all time low during the 70's due to pollution & hunting.
Male otters have large territory's and so tend to balance their own populations.
The presence of Otters should be seen as an indication of a fish population that is healthy enough to sustain them therefore enableing the angler to enjoy his sport. They should be seen as a natural early warning system that if monitored should tell us in advance of any problems with the rivers.
Otters will not tolerate Mink and will kill any that they find in their territory.

Mink are a far bigger threat to our waterways than otters.These have been released in vast numbers into the countryside by the Animal Rights Activists from mink farms.
Mink are a vicious carnivore that will take anything they can get,fish, voles and even birds.

Anglers always use the argument that they are the Guardians of the waterways against the Anti's.So let's not start a crusade against the Otter.[;)]

If I see a mink, I reach for the .22, because they are a nightmare.
