    Did you check the water was right for them, no pollutants, oxegenised, etc


    no but there was fish there before that seeme allright
    :thumbsup:

    are you allowed to just release fish into the wild ?

    I'm sure you were well intentioned, but:
    Before you introduce any fish into any water you must be in
    possession of written consent from the Environment Agency
    under Section 30 of the Salmon and Freshwater Fisheries Act
    1975. This requirement applies to all waters except fish
    farms in England and Wales, including rivers, canals,
    reservoirs, lakes and ponds, whether public or private. If the
    fish intended for introduction are not native to the British
    Isles you will also need a licence under the Wildlife and
    Countryside Act 1981 and/or a licence to keep under the
    Import of Live Fish Act 1980, in addition to consent under
    Section 30.

    You need to check with the environment agency,you cannot just release fish into a river

    you got 100 fish on ebay and they were posted to you....

    this thread smells fishy

    Didn't think you were allowed to buy live animals on ebay :thinking:

    Ive also bought fish (Koi) from ebay ...they came by courier £17,50 they didnt last long either
