Grand Union cats net­ted and then re­homed

Angling Times (UK) - - THIS WEEK -

YOU just don’t know what’s lurk­ing in your lo­cal canal these days, as of­fi­cers from the Canal & River Trust dis­cov­ered re­cently when a rou­tine net­ting op­er­a­tion pro­duced two mon­ster cat­fish.

The two spec­i­mens, one of which weighed nearly 20kg, were dis­cov­ered in the Grand Union Canal at Soul­bury Locks in Buck­ing­hamshire dur­ing a fish pop­u­la­tion sur­vey. They were sub­se­quently re­moved by the team and re­homed at another venue nearby.
