The carp is a traditional, natural product of the South Bohemia. It has been bred in the fishponds of the Třeboň Basin for centuries, using the same time-tested, ecologically sustainable methods of care. The local fishponds are supplied with fresh water through a unique artificial canal – The Golden Canal- in the river valley of the Luznice. The nourishment of the Třeboň carp is based on natural food sources in ponds in combination with supplemental grains. All these unique conditions influence the specific quality of the Třeboň carp.
The meat of the Třeboň Carp is distinguished by high quality, a light, buttery taste and low fat content. The unique taste is the result of long-term breeding in high-quality water and the specific natural environment of the Třeboň Basin. The Třeboň carp grows up to about 1m in length and can weigh as much as 20 kg. The optimal weight for consumption is 1.2 – 1.8 kg at three years old or 2.4 – 3.2 kg at four years.
