An ecological survey of Lake Lambert has highlighted that the pond is over populated with fish, namely Rudd and Perch.
Unfortunately this concentration of fish is responsible for the cloudy water which is having a negative impact on the health of the pond’s eco system. The Cambourne Consortium has therefore taken the decision to substantially reduce fish numbers through a humane process called electro fishing, which stuns the fish allowing them to be netted and removed. The result should see a substantial improvement in water quality and the Lake Lambert’s flora and fauna.
Work is due to start in March.
