Well guys, I need your help. google does not give me the answer so I hope at least one of you can!
These are fish, that I know. I even assume they are the famous ‘pejerrey’ you so often find on your plate. But what are they doing?? They make a hell of a noise splashing in the water. Are they mating (they certainly aren’t discreet) or fighting? But often they are 3…
Now I know why Argentines love to fish, you can just grab them, no patience is needed 🙂
Please somebody, enlighten me! Thanks!!! :-s

Most likely they are spawning…the males may be fighting in order to be with a female.
(Hi, btw- first time posting but i’ve been following you since I read your post on the Jineteada…)
Thanks for your post! I was starting to despair, thinking there are no fishers or fish lovers among my readers 🙂
Those are Carp and they are spawning for sure.
where did you take the pictures?
I heard there are carp in Argentina but I don’t know in what areas they are found.
Thanks! Could carps be related to the pejerrey? That’s the local fish here in the area, around Chascomús.
