Longreed Common Carp

Mayfly Aquacare  produces and sells its own strain of  stunning  common carp from C2 to C6 (including C3, C4, C5 and upper 20lb, 30lb and 40lb carp) on our  CEFAS  registered site near Lewes in East Sussex.

We have named these common carp the Longreed strain as the broodstock originated  from our specimen carp fishery Longreed that has produced numerous 40lb plus commons.

These are a well proportioned  carp with a fairly long body and large fins.

We also have a small number of sparsely scaled mirror/leather carp for sale.

Growth rates can be in excess of 8lb per year but  a steady 4-5lb  is more the norm.

We choose specific broodstock  for size and shape potential and with the small amount of leather/mirrors  produced we pick lightly scaled parents.
