Carp are the largest members of the minnow family. They are heavy-bodied fish and are usually bronze coloured with large scales, each with a dark spot at the base. Their dorsal fin is long, containing one serrated spine in the front of the fin and more than 16 soft rays. They have two barbels on each side of the upper jaw.

There are two day-ticket waters on the island. Millbrook and Dannemarche reservoirs are fishable for:- Seniors and Juniors. No pike are to be found in the reservoirs. There are ground bait restrictions and night fishing is allowed. Species present are roach, rudd, bream, carp, tench and perch.
