長らくブログアップ出来なくてスミマセン。7月末の集中豪雨から復旧作業と選別に追われようやくパソコンの前に座る気になりました。 ブログ動画はいくつか撮影してあるのですが時が経った今、チョット古いネタばかりで・・・とりあえず水害被害のあった場所の一部を載せてみました。この場所は沢に沿って稚魚池が12面、約8反部あります。 大変、沢の幅が狭く盆地化している為、大した雨でなくてもその沢には結構な水が集まります。そこに来てあの魔の大豪雨。。。勿論、池は一溜まりもありません。 川が増水しマブ（手掘りの水路）が飲みきれなくなりダム化した池。 山が崩れ水路を塞ぎ池が川状態になった場所。 謎の大穴があき川の減水と共に池の水が空っぽになった場所。 池の真ん中に林が出来た場所。色々ありました。 そしてその池に行きたくても道が塞がり行けない場所も多々ありました。 しかしスタッフ皆で協力しあい力を合わせ生き残った鯉達を無事確保。 重機屋さんの素早い対処もあり池の修復も出来る限りは復旧。 みんなの協力があっての賜物です。 全然、根拠は無いのですがこんな逆境を生き残った鯉達の中に素晴らしい鯉が出来るのでは？とプラス思考に考えています。
I’m terribly sorry for not updating our blog for long time. At the end of July, we had terrible rain and I haven’t been able to spend much time for computre because we have culling and reconstruction. Movie was filmed before but didn’t have time to upload it. Let me show you the place where was damaged by this terrible rain. In this area, we have 12 fry pond which roughly 8,000 squre meter. The stream besides these pond is very narrow and it will be fulled up with not much rain, so it didn’t have enough capacity to handle such a huge rain we had . . . Matter of course, it was overflowed and can not be functioned as pond. This area become like a dam because rain was much more than drain and water level become higher and higher. We also found a plce where landslide cover road, stream and drain, so pond become like a river. In addition, we found unknown big whole in mud pond which drain all water with fry . . . There are many places we can not go because of such a terrible conditions but all of staff work together very hard and we hopefully found fry which remain in pond. We also would like to appreciate to construction company because they soon took an action to recover our destroyed mud pond. There is nothing I can do for myself alone but everybody work together so hard and now we are moving forward. I know this is not realistic way of thinking but I take this incident positive way and believe we can harvest wonderful and beautiful koi which survive from this horrible circumstances.
水害の翌日、4キロ位ある道無き道を進みたどり着いたそこには増水により変わり果てた池がありました。山が崩れ土砂で埋まった池。未だ川が流れ混んでいる池。ひどい池では防鳥網の杭に使う単管（2m位）の先までゴミが引っ掛かっている池も幾つかありました。 その中にほぼ無傷（土手超えはしているが）な池を発見。やや高台にあった為、わずかな水没で済んだ、この池の鯉達は流されずに済んだかな・・・・・・・・・・と思った翌日・・・・・・・・救出道具を担ぎまた道無き道を運んでいたスタッフ原、武藤ペアから電話が・・・・『一番無事だと思っていた池に水がありません。』と。 駆けつけてみると池底に直径3m深さ10m位の大穴が・・・何これ??何故??意味が判らずただ放心状態・・・ 色々調べてみると昔、そこにはマブ（手掘りの水路）がありそこに十数年前、土砂崩れが起こり山になった上に田んぼを作ったらしくそこを当社が池を作り今回の豪雨で埋まったはずのマブを逆流し池底10mの土を削り減水と同時に池底が引っ張られ穴が空いた様です。（判りずらい??）何はともわれ自然の恐ろしさを再確認した今回の出来事でした。
Nex day we had heavy rain, we walked 4km of road is covered with thousands of obstracle and found pond which was destroyed by too much water. We found pond which is covered by landslide. Water from river still stream into some mud pond. It is not hard to imagine how bad rain it was because we could see trush which was caught top of 2m metal pole. Hopefully, we found one mud pond which is not badly damaged. Hara and Muto carried necessary instruments all the way and visited this pond to rescue fry nex day but they reported me that all water was gone from pond. WHAT?????? I soon flew to pond and found one big whole, 3m width and 10m depth, in mud pond. I couldn’t resist asking many questions to myself. What is this? Why does it happen? It wasn’t here yesterday but why today??? As far as we know so far, there was stream but it was covered by landslide roughly 10 years ago. Previous land owner constructed land and use for rice paddy. However, because of this huge rain, water shaved mud from underneath of ground and sucked all mud down when all water were drained. (Hope you understand this explanation . . ) Anyway, we know how nature is strong from quake but we found it again through this rain.
沢の最初の土砂崩れから約4キロ、道無き道を鯉達を少しでも助けたい一心で6人で餌、選別道具、肥やし、各自色々持ちながらつき進みました。 一番、沢の奥にある池。川が飲みきれなく池に土砂ごと入ってきた池。地曳網を引いてみると想像より遥かに多く鯉達が残っていました。 コーヒー牛乳の様な水色の為、墨がかすれ非常に選別しずらかったですが、環境回復次第で元に戻るので気になりません。何んと言っても無事、選別が出来た喜びを感じた一日でした。
All of six members of Isa Koi Farm walked more than 4km to reach to this mud pond. Everyone of us just wish strongly to rescue even a piece of fry and carried culling instruments, tub, fertilizer, koi food and more. This is the pond which locate very last of stream and it contains lots of mud which is delivered by river because there was anywhere to go. However, hopefully, we had much numbers of fry than we expected. Because mud is heavily stirrered, sumi is bid blurred and difficult to cull but this is not problem at all because it will be cured when environment become better. Needless to say, we were nothing more than happy because we could rescue many frys and found more number of quality fry than we expected.
