24lb Salmon Found Dead In The River Don

This fish was found lying belly up in the Lower Wood Pool of Manar. On removal by the River Don Bailiffs, this fish weighed in at 24lbs and was a bar of silver!!! Scales were taken and the fish was sent for analaysis (awaiting results). Last week on the Dee I encountered two fish covered in a similar fungal like growth around the gills. The bailiffs told of fish from other river systems with the same symptoms. Could it possibly be caused by the low, warm water? Hopefully when the results come back I'll be able to tell you more. Such a shame, it would have been a belter of a fish.
