Seine-netting and electro-fishing surveys of the Buckingham Palace Garden lake demonstrated that the fish population was of low species diversity and density with low to normal growth rates. The population was dominated by roach Rutilus rutilus, with smaller numbers of gudgeon Gobio gobio and perch Perca fluviatilis. Isolation and eutrophication are suggested to be key factors in structuring the composition of fish populations in Buckingham Palace Lake.
