The fish population of Aix and Isable (2km from home) :
The Aix (1st category) has medium trout densities at high and its main tributaries. Also note the presence of the pearl mussel on Boen and Font d’Aix, proof that the waters have kept a very good physicochemical quality. At St Germain Laval, the stand is composed of trout and grayling but there are also plenty of chub, gudgeon and minnows. Downstream of St Germain Laval, in the plain, the settlement consists mainly of white fish whitewater (chub, gudgeon, minnows, dace and spirlins) and predators (pike, zander and perch), particularly near the confluence with the Loire River. The fish population of Isable is essentially dominated by trout.
