I hope someone can answer this. My club has a water with far too many Rudd in the 5 - 6 inch range. If we wanted to remove 2000 or even as many as 4 or 5000, how much would they be worth if anything ??

Thanks in advance.

Hiya Stribbo

Well I don't know what they'd be worth to sell but to give you an idea Carpvale Fisheries (www.carpvale.com) sell 4-6" rudd at 50/100 (+VAT)

We used to net our club lake a few years ago to remove small roach and we found that rather than selling them we got better value by inviting a fish farm (we used to use Humberside Fisheries) to come and net the lake and then swopping our unwanted fish with them for something more useful (one year we got 200 8" carp for approx.1000 small roach)

Bear in mind that will need permission off the EA to remove or introduce fish (although most fish farms will do the paperwork for you)

Hope this is of some help
