[quote]If you were to take some English carp spawn and selectively hand rear the resulting fry in tanks then in heated indoor pools until it weighed 63lbs and then stocked it would it be cosidered a British record when it was caught? And if not why not? The record is for the largest of the species "fairly caught on rod and line" in this country.[/quote]True again, but then it wouldn't have been stocked into that particular water between C1 and C4. Therefore it couldn't be considered a true British fish by the general definition that I gave, surely?

(I'm not splitting hairs, honest! )[/quote]What if I were to catch it from the heated pool? Would it count then?

This is one of those threads that refuses to lie down isn't it.

I too love those 'old English' Carp & harbour a real passion to fish for wildies (anybody know where I can?) However, don't forget those old warriors are the result of European breeding expertise, foreign Carp are our heritage.

Do you not agree Jim that foreign Carp are our heritage?

Not quite on topic here!!

If I take all the small carp from a pond where they spawn every year, as early as March sometimes(Wonderful Weymouth climate!!), and leave only the big ones to breed, will the resultant youngsters grow bigger than those bred from smaller parents?

Overall and in general, yes they will. Some smaller ones but if you do that sort of culling/selecting for a few generations you will wind up with fish that average larger than when you started.

Much as I had surmised, but I was told that I would be wasting my time. Still! the new ponds want stocking anyway. Cheers!!
What time is it where you are Newt??
