Brackish water Carp?

Recommended Posts

Just a thought I had recently, but anyone know how well carp deal with salinity levels? Will they occasionally swim into the ocean bays from rivers? I found a few nice spots to try but they might be a little to close to the ocean, right about on the salt line. Any information is appreciated ;)

Carp can tolerate salt up to 14-17 ppt (parts per thousand) & sea water is typically 35 ppt. 

So you will certainly find them in estuarine water especially when rivers are in flood or on an out going tide.
