Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI) are seeking the help of local anglers and the general public to report any sightings of distressed fish due to high water temperatures or low water levels.

They are also requesting anglers to voluntarily cease using keep nets during periods of very warm weather, to prevent unintentional distress to fish kept for long periods in these nets.

Reports can be made to the local fisheries office in Clonmel on 052 6180055 or the 24-hour hotline number on 1890 347424.

Inland Fisheries Ireland staff will continue to monitor water bodies for any signs of distressed fish in shallow water, but say they may be able to react more quickly to timely reports received.
