Saving the crucian carp

Study by Carl Sayer and Dave Emson leads to conservation protection

Saving the crucian carp

Recent survey work in small Norfolk ponds by Dr Carl Sayer and PhD student Dave Emson (in association with colleagues from Cefas and Bedwell Fisheries) has highlighted a severe decline in the occurrence of crucian carp, Britain's only native carp species. As a result of this work the species has been designated as a Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) species for Norfolk, its first formal conservation protection in the UK.
