  • Otters - The Facts

    The recovery of otters in the UK is impacting inland fisheries through predation. The situation is complex, and it is not clear why some waters have not been affected, even though otters are present. This document summarises our current knowledge and is intended as a starting point for further work.

      Apparently there is a number of otters in every county in the UK.
      I have an incidental on my left shoulder, he's always there, he's my friend.
      He says he gives me good advice. does he ?

        Sounds encouraging to me.
        Nature will find it's own level of bio-diversity and even things up itself if left undisturbed.
        The fact that we as humans virtually wiped this species out in the first place is the crime, not the re-introduction of it.
        There are to be no-more releases into the wild from what i gathered from the report so eventually nature will find a balance.
        The fact some fisheries are not being impacted upon could be due to the fact no Otters are resident within that area as i believe they are very territorial.
        On the gathering storm comes a tall handsome man, in a dusty black coat and red right hand.

                Some of the views on this site regarding the native natural predators' effect on commercial fishing is nothing short of ridiculous.

                It's like saying " The police are ruining driving becuase we can't go past schools at 90mph "

                The sooner you nature-haters realise all you/we are doing is supplying them with an easy source of food, the better you will sleep at night!

                    Have you even bothered to read the report? I have and cant see anything that attacks the otter in fact emphasises the fact that it is a protected species.
