The Co-operative has begun it’s stocking programme for 2020. The latest introduction of juvenile eels (glass eels) took place in the past few days.

These tiny creatures have been arriving on the coastlines of Europe over the past few months having been carried on global currents.

A significant percentage of these fish will live and grow in Lough Neagh’s waters for up 20 years before making the epic return journey back to the Sargasso Sea, over 6,000 km away.
