Chateau Moulin has about 600 original carp (both common and mirror) living in the lake, which have reached considerable size. Also to be found are impressive catfish, zander and pike.

The absence of any angling pressure has allowed the carp to grow undisturbed. Their weight lies between 9 kg (19lb) and 27.2 kg (60lb) with the average weight about 16 kg (35lb).

The lake is restocked every year and we expect to have a maximum of 800 big carp in the next couple of years.
