Meenbog Incident Update 24/11/2020

Date: 24/11/2020


Loughs Agency’s assessment of the fisheries impact of the bog slide at Meenbog is ongoing and may take some time to complete.  Unfortunately, survey work and assessments are being hampered by high water conditions and the colouration of the river.  Due to the nature of the investigation, the Agency is limited in the information it can share publicly.

The Agency continues to participate in the cross border multi-agency working group established in response to the bog slide.

As the extent of the incident continues to be assessed, it is essential that any fish fatalities identified in the Mourne Beg or River Derg are reported to Loughs Agency Fishery Officers who will collect and evaluate them. Members of the public should not recover fish but report their locations to Loughs Agency staff.  This is to ensure that any evidence gathered meets the appropriate standard. Reports should be made directly to Loughs Agency by telephoning +44 (0) 28 7134 2100.
