The East Lothian Angling Association has been alerted that an organised gang of poachers, based in North East England, are planning to Electrofish rivers and burns in East Lothian and East Edinburgh, within the next 2 weeks.
Locally, in particular the Drem to Peffer burns and the Tyne, but it is suspected they will be everywhere in between. They can wipe out stocks of fish very rapidly.
Please lookout for people with electro fishing gear near burns/rivers and assume that these people are not operating legally and are poachers (on a large scale) and to call the bailiff/police:
