A real life herabuna

The Japanese white crucian carp, as it is known in America, is a freshwater dwelling fish that originated in Japan. Now spread through most of Asia, it was thought to be a species of wild goldfish. The herabuna is a larger version of the Japanese white crucian carp, that is "farmed" for use in fishing, although it is mainly for catch and release activities.
