Fish Kills- Every Anglers Nightmare
You insure your car and your house. This may be due to legal reasons but you also insure them as most people can’t afford to replace these should the worst happen. This being the case, if you own or rent your own fishery and the worst happens, can you afford to replace the lost stock to the standard you had before? In most cases the answer would be no.
We know that most fisheries do all they can to alleviate any risk to the fish stocks, with dipping tanks, aerators should the oxygen level fall and strict rules concerning the introduction of new stock. However, there are situations that occur that are simply out of your control such as bird life bringing in disease , algal blooms and pollution. Should any of these occur it can be catastrophic to your fish stocks.
The aftermath of such an occurrence can be disastrous, both in the short term and long term. If a fish kill happens you will need to incur the cost of re-stocking, with most fisheries in our experience not having the available funds to do this. Furthermore if you have a depleted stock it is difficult to attract new members/anglers and retain your existing ones. Let’s be honest; who wants to fish a lake when your chosen quarry has gone when there are so many other fisheries to choose from?
This is why Insure my Lake was set up with a leading insurer who specialises in Aquaculture to alleviate some of strain that a fish kill can cause. It allows fisheries to insure the loss of all stock or part of that stock, depending on your requirement, and in most cases costs the same as a few memberships.
For peace of mind for your members and the fisheries this really is a no brainer. Please see www.insuremylake.co.uk and speak to one of our consultants. We know you will be pleasantly surprised
