Well, it is, somewhere back in it's genetic history, basically a carp... so you COULD eat it... of course, whether you'd WANT to eat a carp is another issue, especially as the name is an anagram of 'crap' for a reason... (back in 1763, when the Carp was first discovered by explorer George T. Halibut (yes, he named several fish) it was on a remote island near Japan, where his ship had run aground, and his crew were starving... being an expert in botany, particularly fish, he captured a number of varieties of the local piscean population, and tried eating a few... unfortunately, when he tried the Carp, he'd also just finished the ships rum off, and he wrote the note "thish fish is bearly palitable, and has a shipload of very fien boneses that make it hard to ing... ignest... eat... overall, I'd have to say it tasts like carp..." <-- from this, we can gather he wasn't the best speller when inebriated - but the name stuck...)

Mind you, the chinese had found out earlier that the Carp, while tasting of Crap, also added considerable Ying to your Yang, and was responsible for raising bamboo where previously only small, wobbly bean sprouts had been before... hence things like sweet & sour fish being invented early in their cuisine...

This one, so far, hasn't proved edible at all though... he's still too small to get a decent coating of batter...

Walter, and his sister Wendy, are distant cousins to our other Black Moor, Willy... he has steadily turned from black, to silver, and is now going gold... he's also a lazy fish, for a Goldfish, spending a lot of time snoozing under plants... but we love him all the same...
