We have learnt of two confirmed cases of Koi Herpes Virus (KHV) in South Yorkshire. This is a very damaging and easily spread virus that affects common carp and carp varieties such as koi. The virus only affects fish and cannot be caught by humans, or other animals.

The EA have released two news articles Fish Health Management and Biosecurity and KHV Protecting Your Fishery

The Environment Agency (03708 506 506) is your first point of contact if you suspect an outbreak of disease in your fishery. After we have spoken to you, we may need to come and collect samples of fish to work out what the disease is. We may also need to contact the Fish Health Inspectorate – a separate Government body responsible for controlling the most serious types of disease.

The Fish Health Inspectorate has now taken over management of these two outbreaks of KHV. They are implementing controls at each site to contain and eradicate the disease, in order to protect Yorkshire’s fisheries and the livelihoods that depend upon them.

For more information about the FHI's responsibilities, current legislation, or forms and guidance, visit the Aquatic Animal Health and Movements website www.defra.gov.uk/aahm/

The Environment Agency has commissioned the Angling Trust to carry out a National Angling Survey. The 10 minute online survey aims to find out the issues that are important to anglers so that more can be done to increase angling participation and improve the quality of fishing and services available. All anglers in England and Wales, from novices to experts, are encouraged to take part.

The survey is part of a National Angling Participation Plan to get more people into fishing and to help existing anglers fish more often through improving access, providing information and improving fish stocks.
