Another potential problem on the River Gryffe…

Further to the ongoing fish kill, we have been informed of a pollution incident on a tributary of the Gryffe – the Dargavel Burn. The photographs (taken today by Alan Beaton of the Bridge of Weir Angling Club) show what looks like silt or other suspended solids flowing into the tidal stretch of the Gryffe. We have received reports of diseased fish in the tidal stretch of the Gryffe but there is currently no evidence to link the two events. The incident has been reported to SEPA and we will post updates as soon as we hear anything.
