Mark Sawyer got more than he bargained for when he reeled in a very unusual and bizarre type of fish.
Weighing just under 2lb and caught in Cambridge, the strange fish is actually an amalgamation of three different fish species with the head of a roach, the body of a goldfish and the rear fin of a bream. Experts who have examined photographs of the catch agree that it is likely to be the offspring of more than one species.
"It is a proper oddity," said Sawyer. "The head resembles more of a roach, its lips aren’t quite right. It has the body of a normal goldfish, its anal fin resembles a bream and the tail is of a fan-tailed goldfish." Images of the fish can be viewed - here
"Most anglers’ tales revolve around the improbable size of their catch – but this specimen really does look fishy."
