Army personnel from a military driving school are to transport an unusual load when they help to relocate 900lb of fish to a lake in Bradford.
Thousands of Rudd fish will be loaded onto military vehicles
A pond in the grounds of the Defence School of Transport base at Leconfield near Beverley will be de-stocked of thousands of Rudd fish on Monday.
The fish will be loaded onto army vehicles and taken away from the base.
Some will be re-homed at a lake in Cottingley, Bradford, while the rest will be put into Beverley canal.
The move has been organised to help the declining numbers of great crested newt, which also live in the ponds at the base.
Environment Agency fisheries officer Pete Turner said: "The great crested newt will get the chance to thrive on land at the barracks, and anglers in Bradford and Beverley will also benefit from the boost to their local fish stocks."
