Priory fish are produced from the farm’s own broodstock, grown on in purpose-built, professionally managed ponds.
CARP – Cyprinus carpio
BREAM – Abramis brama
TENCH – Tinca tinca
CRUCIAN CARP – Carassius carassius
GOLDEN RUDD – Scardinius erythrophthalmus
A Carp is just a Carp? Well you would have thought so but we would like to show you different. The strain of Carp we breed at the Priory is unique to our farm and was created 30 + years ago by crossing two very distinctive strains.
One of the most popular fish around and always very much in demand by our customers. A must in any mixed fishery, the Tench is a hard fighting fish and very resilient to the everyday fishery life.
We originally sourced Crucians from two different lakes so that we had not only two different gene pools, but also we were very careful to make sure they were "true" Crucians and were not brown goldfish.
