I see there's a fool of an angler already making stupid noises about negative effect on salmon and sea trout, as if European (and Canadian) Beavers hadn't lived for millennia with both.... its also disappointing that the announcement seems to be limited to the River Otter, as if the Tory wreckers currently in charge are reserving the right to decide which rivers can have Beavers and which can't. Not what one wanted to hear, really.

Fisherman (not all) are going to be the main culprits talking about fish stocks and giveing negativity where its not needed unfortunately and again with ministers I,ll only listen to the science not them.
