Dear Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs,

I would like to make the following Freedom of Information request.

How many captive-bred Mallards (Anas platyrhynchos) are released annually into the wild or shooting states by the shooting industry in order to be shot? If an annual average has not been calculated please provide the latest number your department has and which year that represents.

Yours faithfully,

Jordi Casamitjana
