A small, but unexplained number, of carp have died over the past few weeks raising concerns over a viral outbreak at Moor Monkton Pools situated on the outskirts of York.

After the confirmed case of Koi Herpes Virus at Leeds & District’s ASA’s Kippax polo pond, the society this week suffered more bad news at their recently purchased venue near York.

On-site fishery manager and Leeds president Stan Jeffreys said this week that the deaths had been reported to the Environment Agency which is arranging for samples to be collected and sent to laboratories for testing.

At the moment, Mr Jeffreys (together with EA officers) does not think it is the Koi Herpes Virus and is swaying towards a dietary problem.
