About: Around the late 1950’s the Dublin Trout Anglers’ Association suggested that fish stocks in Poulaphuca should be investigated. Anecdotal evidence was indicating that trout were few in number and those caught were small. This scientific paper studies the food consumed by over 1,000 trout and perch caught by netting in the lake. The writer concludes that the perch prevented the trout from obtaining an adequate supply of food necessary for their full development.
