Now that Otters have re-established themselves following decades of habitat pollution and destruction, sections of the fishing community are claiming that they are now ‘eating all the fish.’

Recent studies have shown however, that for instance during the summer, the percentage of fish in the otters diet is about 31% rising to about 68% during the winter.  During the summer months, 70% of fish eaten were of the non-fishing specie, the common Bullhead.
