The first Pacu that came in were sourced locally and were all between 5 kg and 7 kg. I have added quite a few of similar sizes since then, some of them even coming from aquarium shops from people who have put them in aquariums and found that they grow too big very quickly.

The Pacu have done very well in the lake and get caught quite regularly. They have split themselves into two or maybe three shoals, and there are quite a few fish all together. The biggest ones in the lake are now pushing 15 kg.
