  05 January 2023

A spokesperson for the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) said:

 “We have received a number of reports from members of the public regarding dead fish in a pond at Gartmorn Dam, near Fishcross.

 “A SEPA officer attended to investigate on Thursday 22 December and again on Sunday 1 January and no pollution was identified. It is suspected the fish may have died due to a combination of cold weather, ice and a lack of oxygen and the incident has been referred to Marine Scotland.

 “We would like to thank the members of the public who reported this and continue to encourage anyone who spots signs of pollution to report this to SEPA online at  or by calling 0800 80 70 60.”
