F1

A cross between a Crucian and a Common Carp. More than 600 commercial fisheries in the UK have taken delivery of this hard-fighting fish since they were first bred 12 years ago, and it's a trend that shows no sign of slowing down. F1's have revolutionised fishing. They are the perfect fish for commercials - They feed all year round, don't grow too big and can't contract KHV. Some people call them 'Frankenstein carp' but they have helped to make many commercials what they are today.
