Inshore Fish Species UK

“The funny thing about creating a sea fish recognition Smartphone app for the UK is that it will never be finished”

What do I mean by that statement?

Well in the beginning and on V1 of the App we decided to produce the App in a basic form just to get it out onto the market. What Fish UK came out with a few fish and some basic information just to see if it would be something that customers would be interested in?

After a good response we decided to take it very seriously and enlist professionals in each form of fishing to help us out with the correct modern rigs, baits and lures to help an angler catch a certain species of UK sea fish.

The fish recognition App suddenly turned into a very large sea fishing App and database.

Our roots have not been forgotten and the volume of fish on What Fish UK still remains unbeaten by any other app keeping us at number 1 spot in not only the UK but also in Europe.

We are currently hard at work adding new species to the App for future release. As you are probably aware by now, we are not in the business of just adding random rare species to the App just to boost the numbers, we are very much in the mind of adding fish that we have proof have been caught/found around the UK’s coastline recently.

If you are an angler or are interested in marine fish you will no doubt share our fascination in all things fishy and when you are presented with a rare species found on our coastline we find it very interesting.

Allow me to introduce you to the newest member to be added to the What Fish UK App on the next update.

This fish was found by Mr Steve Perry washed up on the shoreline on Chesil Beach in Dorset.

The fish is commonly known as the Boarfish (AKA: Zulu Fish) (Scientific Name: Capros aper)

Steve said that he was walking to a fishing spot on Chesil and the red colour caught his eye.

The fish had obviously died and been washed up along the shore. We believe there are 11 species of Boarfish in the world and this particular one is of the most common to European waters.

It is a species of fish commonly found in between 100m-400m of water around the Eastern Atlantic, Western Norway, Skagerrak, Shetlands and Western Scotland and Senegal. They are also found in the Mediterranean. These Boarfish fish shoal in groups and can be found in depths of up to 700m.

Interestingly enough, the discovery of this species off of the Irish coast has now sparked a debate about whether Ireland's rate of climate change may be even more dramatic than first realised! Powerful stuff!

Cats threaten endangered species.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. - With 4 million to 6 million unwanted animals - mostly cats - put to sleep each year in the United States, some people might consider it more humane to free the felines into the wild.
But as these cats forage for food and establish their territories, they kill more than a billion small mammals and birds each year, many of which are threatened or endangered, a University of Florida study shows.
Feral, or free-roaming, untamed cats pose a serious threat to endangered species nationwide as colonies of the wild cats have grown, largely because local groups provide funding and resources to sustain them, according to the UF study commissioned by the U

“This allows the predator fish to feed heavily on the forage fish species. Consequently, the predator fish species are fatter and healthier during the next years spawning season,” she explained.
