Description: Scardinius erythrophthalmus

Specimen weight: 1 kg (2 lb 4 oz).

Irish Record weight: 4lb 8oz Cooney Lake, 1996.

The Rudd is a gold sliver fish, of the family Cyprinidae.

This species is very like the Roach (Rutilus rutilus), with which it can be easily confused. It can be identified by eye colour (deep blood-red as opposed to yellow) and the upturned mouth and often depending on water colour golden tints on the scales, the reason why the rudd has an upturned mouth is because it is easy for them to feed at the top of the water

Location: The rudd is freshwater fish, widely spread in Europe and middle Asia, around the basins of the North, Baltic Black, Caspian and Aral seas. It has been artificially introduced to Ireland, USA, Morocco, Madagascar, Tunisia, New Zealand, Canada and Spain.
