Is it possible to tell what sort of fish this darter has caught? Seen at Marina da Gamma (Cape Town) in early May 2012.

Arks, I suck at fish, but I think it is a carp.

Googling a bit, it seems that I may be correct.

I'm no itcholigist, but the Squared off tail, spikey dorsal , Tilapia would be my answer

Looks very much like a tilapia. Though I can't rule out grass carp completely. Not an expert,just a fisher woman. :lol:

Many thanks, Gilbertr14 and AKadwa. It certainly does look quite like that tilapia illustration!
