Fish Stock Survey of Lough Gur, August 2021

The lake was previously surveyed by the Inland Fisheries Trust in March 1978 and by IFI (previously the Central Fisheries Board) between December 1988 and October 1989. These surveys revealed that a relatively large stock of fast growing rudd and pike were present in the lake. Since 2009 the lake has been surveyed on four occasions (2009, 2012, 2015 and 2018). Perch were first captured in the 2012 survey of the lake and dominated biomass in the 2018 survey.

This report summarises the results of the 2021 fish stock survey carried out on the lake using Inland Fisheries Ireland’s fish in lakes monitoring protocol. The protocol is WFD compliant and also provides insight into fish stock status in the lake
