Re: Barbes vs barbless

I was approximating, Graeme :p

We just don’t see those numbers of dead fish in the water. Dead fish are pretty easy to see. Trout turn upside down and have white bellies. On a hard fished river it would be impossible to miss them. Every pool would have a few of them.

Re: Barbes vs barbless

It’s not only about mortality for me Torsten, it also has to do with damage to the fish’s mouth. For example it’s really not nice to have lips ripped off. 4.5% is very high incidentally. If you take the Ribnik as an example some days there might be 1000 fish caught. That should result in the death o...
