Hybrid Carp aka misnomer Silver Carp (not Asian Silver carp) in the Asian food market labeling, is one of our fish farm's biggest produce.  As the name "hybrid" imply, it is strain creating vigor, rapid growth, and excellant tasting.  And is given high ratings among the consumers.  They are extremely hardy to various water conditions, higher density, and survive long hauls. We produce the two species in early spring and prepared large mud ponds to grow them out in.  And it takes generally 18 months for them to grow out and be sizeable for the Asian markets.
