It had been advised that the Environment Agency have received reports from several anglers claiming sightings of sturgeon at Red House Lake.

Under the Keeping and Introduction of Fish (KIF) Regulations 2015, it is illegal to keep prohibited non-native fish, including sturgeon, in a fishery.

NOTE - The Pride of Derby have NOT introduced these fish into the lake and as such we must assume that angler members or passers-by have introduced these fish contrary to the Pride of Derby rules and the above EA regulations.

In the meantime, we request all anglers fishing in the Redhouse lake take the following measures should they catch a Sturgeon;
        Do not return any sturgeon back into the fishery.
        Photograph the fish and note the time and date it was caught.
        Contact the Environment Agency incident hotline on 0800 80 70 60 within 24 hours of the catch (F.A.O. East Midlands Fisheries Enforcement).
        The Environment Agency recommends that a suitably sized lockable holding cage is constructed and used by anglers on the site for times when you are not present. These fish may be inspected by an EA Enforcement Officer after being contacted by the fishery.
• Or – Make contact Immediately to one of the Pride of Derby Bailiffs or officials – telephone numbers as noted in your season ticket.

If it is caught and needs relocating, I have an empty pond at home here that can rehouse it. It is ready to go with high oxygenation that is perfect for species such as sturgeon that require high oxygenated water (it is also completely quarantined so no risk of disease transferal to any other fish).
Hopefully not have to spend another 5 years on a remote island.....
