The family was upset because a UK otter (that was endangered) was eating up their imported koi?

/if you & your family can't swim in a pond that contains koi, get rid of the fish.

Otters are cooler than koi fish anyway.  Stupid fish that make stupid tattoos.  Get you an otter sleeve instead.

With helpful pic of what a lucky otter might look like.

/Nice people to leave snacks out like that.

"Some of the larger fish could be worth around £10,000."

And these otters were intentionally released by an activist group?  I bet there are lawyers lined up to sue the conservationists for every dime they've got.  They obviously did zero in the way of impact studies before releasing the animals - probably more for feel good notoriety than actual environmentalism.  I doubt they'll be feeling very good when the collection houses start calling.

People need to understand - and accept - that there are reasons these animals died out in this area.  The ecosystem has moved on, evolved.  Where there used to be lakes and fields, there are now houses and well maintained ponds.  It's not that one is better than the other; they're just different.  They're designed to support widely different types of wildlife.  And unless these conservation groups can provide habitat in the way of zoos and conservatory lands, they have no business releasing these animals.

I hope for this poor couple that they are able to at least capture and kill the otter.

Linda and Alan, also 60, of Thetford, Norfolk, were visiting their daughter in New Zealand for a month when the otter struck.

So, they thought carp don't need to eat much, we'll just go off and leave the pond alone for a month and expect wildlife to know a place they don't smell people being near for weeks rightly is human property and the delicious otter food all placed in that easy-to-hunt tiny pond is off limits.  As well as any herons, etc that might fly by.

You don't pay anything near that for these fish.

Usually, people buy them small and grow them over years. As they grow their value increases.

People trade for them. So your $10,000 koi can get you ten $1000 koi. It's a perfect system!

It's taken care of by the De Scaleers International Koi Cartel, that controls the market and PR campaigns like the "Koi are Forever" push.

Welcome, Mr. Otter, my friend.


The Taste of Koi Fish:

Hello Otter my old friend
I've come to dine with you again
Because a vision softly brimming
Of delicious koi fish slowly swimming
And the hunger that was planted in my brain
Still remains
With the taste of koi fish.
 
2013-02-04 11:28:56 AM
250 koi is far to many for a 6000 gallon pond.

<i>The heartbroken pair have now removed the 6,000-gallon pond because they fear the otter would only come back. </i>

So...remove the fish, electrify the pond, wait a few days and then dispose of the otter corpse.  If authorities question you, blame it on a faulty underwater light.

Neighbours behind me in Niagara Falls build a koi pond last summer.  Stocked it with about 30 fish, didn't bother putting any netting or mesh overtop and when I got up the next morning and looked out in the back it appeared that Ridley Scott had enacted a battle scene from Gladiator.  There were fish parts scattered everywhere and they couldn't understand who would do this.  I suggested it was probably the racoons or coyotes, but they didn't take to kindly to my suggestions.

Oh well.

I'd rather have an otter pond. But I'm guessing keeping aquatic marmots umm within the city limits is illegal dude.

Or, you could put some sort of fence around the pond.Barb wire or better yet electric barb wire. With rotating knives.And carp mounted with a Laser.A tactical Laser maybe and a Glock.That's the ticket.
