British Waterways have electrofished and removed all pike from a section of the B'ham/Fazeley Canal, the first time the pike were killed and sold at market for food. Recently the remaining few pike were removed and also many carp. This has ruined the fishing for pike and carp anglers alike. The only reason for this is due to the greed of the angling club running the water as they want it purely for match fishing. Not only has the specimen fishing been ruined for the many anglers who fished there but also the important ecosystem has been damaged.
