Coarse FishIn the UK, game fish are those historically sought by the upper classes. In the 19th Century, salmon, trout and char were the traditional 'game fish' and the only types acceptable to the nobility.Other freshwater species were less than fashionable. These were labelled 'coarse fish' and only suitable for the lower classes.
Today coarse fishing is a popular pastime, and ranges from simple angling for pleasure, in which the aim is simply to relax and catch whatever you can, to match fishing, which is a contest to catch the most fish in a specific period. Sometimes anglers try to specimen hunt, during which they try to catch the largest specimen of a specific type of fish they can. Coarse fish include species such as carp, perch, roach, tench and bream.
Mainstream Fisheries supply and deliver these and many other species of coarse fish. We guarantee a high standard of quality in all the fish produced at our farms. Please see our prices page for more information.
