Koi Herpes Virus (KHV) Warning

Koi Herpes Virus (KHV) remains a serious threat with 16 outbreaks recorded across the country in 2018, including 5 in our local area.

A list of all affected waters is available at https://www.gov.uk/search?q=KHV+outbreaks and fish at those venues are potential carriers of the virus. As such, any damp or wet fishing tackle or gear is a huge risk (not just landing nets) so make sure all your fishing gear is clean and completely, thoroughly dry before entering onto any Farnham Angling Society fishery.

Thorough drying, ideally in sunlight, is the best form of disinfection. We do not use net dips as they cannot be relied upon due to contamination, dilution, exposure time and the fact that many items are never dipped.

It is not just about nets but also retainers, slings, mats, stink bags and even potentially moisture in tubing or in braid ! Anything that has been in contact with fish or the water.

Please, help us to protect Farnham Angling Society venues by making absolutely sure that all your equipment is dry.

Concerns about fish should be reported to Richard Cane, Fishery Management Secretary on 01252 – 721105 in the first instance. The Executive Committee
