I have a 12 acre very old lake in north east Texas.

I had it electrical surveyed last summer and we got a lot of small carp looking fish. The biologist told me the name of them, but I have forgotten it. I can't get a hold of him for some reason, so I thought you could help me figure out what they are. He told me there was so many of them that they were now a vital part of the food chain. They were brownish gold and mostly around 8-10 inches. He told me they got a little bigger, but 10 inches was the biggest I believe. He called them a name and it was not just carp. I was wanting to do some research on the specific fish, but I need to know what they are. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

  • It sounds to me like a Crucian Carp. They generally don't get larger than around that sort of size, and are goldish in colour. Does that name ring any bells?
