The silver rocket, yellow cheek is a species under the carp family. But unlike most carps that are herbivorous, the yellow cheek is carnivorous. It can grow up to 2m long in length and can weigh over 50kg. With the ability to grow into such mass plus the streamlined body, and its over-sized forked caudal tail, the yellow cheek carp is one of the fastest and most fercious species which makes it the apex predator of the rivers and dams in China. It is therefore one of the most wanted trophy fish for many anglers.
At certain months of the year, be rewarded with a bonus catch of another rare fish in the Pearl Lake, that is the Mandarin Perch. Other species that can be found in this lake is the Seabass and Sky Gazer.
