I'm no bream expert by any means so i have no clue i just thought it was such a big variance.

Incidentally it was my first bream (37cm) I'm cursed with them

Growth spurt?

Wed, 2010-06-23 21:51

Apart from the possibility that they are of different gender (the males do tend to be heavier) it just goes to show how slowly these fish mature.  They seem to get to about 30cm reasonably quickly, but then they slow right down, and 1cm difference can represent a couple of years' growth.

Fish for the future!
