Hi everyone! Sorry if this is not the correct place to ask questions like that. In case that's not, the right forum indication would be appreciated.

I know that different species can stay out of water for different amount of time. Some are cool enough to survive for a week.
What about common rudd? Is it minutes? Hours? Anyone dealt with them?

So, how long can YOU survive under water? Two or three minutes for rudd and most coarse fish. Carp can tolerate a bit longer. Fish such as chub and dace less.

You have asked a good question and Wylye has made a good point in reply. I recall reading elsewhere that the instruction given by a blue water charter boat Skipper to his deck hands was that a fish should not be kept out of water for longer than they could hold their own breath.

In my view irrespective of the species and their resilience we should not keep fish out of water for more than the absolute minimum time necessary, especially in this weather! Smile
