The 2011 fisheries survey report for the Counter Drain caused considerable concern amongst the local angling community; it reported a large decline in fish density which led to the perception that silver fish populations within the channel had collapsed. Although highlighting decreased numbers of fish captured the 2011 report stated that the result should only be viewed as a snapshot in time and may not have represented the true status of fish stocks and further surveys would be required to investigate this poor result. The 2014 survey was scheduled as an additional investigative survey cycle in an attempt to answer the question posed by the prior survey; had silver fish populations collapsed, or were the poor catches a result of fish migration from the areas routinely surveyed?

The 2014 investigation found a total of 14 species and one type of hybrid present with roach heavily dominant by both density and standing crop.
