Local anglers have said it could take years for stocks to recover after a major fish kill in a Northern Ireland river.

According to BBC News, it’s believed hundreds of juvenile salmon were lost as a result of a slurry spill affecting a mile-long stretch of the Corkley River near Keady in Co Armagh, which was reported on Saturday (21 October).

The river, a tributary of the Callan which feeds into the Blackwater and ultimately Lough Neagh, is known to be a spawning and nursery ground for salmon and trout as well as Lough Neagh trout or dollaghan.
