Pure bred Crucian Carp seem to be on the decline in the UK, probably both as a result of cross breeding with common and mirror carp, whose progeny are sterile and avian predation. They are stunning pretty fish which anglers love to catch and we are pleased to be producing a line of pure-bred Crucian Carp.
These fish are quite different to Common Carp in that they thrive in small waters that are not intensively stocked with other fish. They love weedy waters. In the right conditions, they are prolific breeders and will grow to a couple of pounds and can provide great sport.
