"The Pacu could come to UK after being discovered in Western Europe
A fisherman in Paris reeled in the frightening-looking fish last week
The Pacu is of Brazilian origin and is related to the fearsome piranha
Sometimes owners of exotic aquariums dumped them in nearby rivers."



I doubt they could survive the freezing cold temperatures of Northern Europe. They are a tropical species from South America and have not evolutionairly evolved to survive in cold water.

By the way Pacu are delicious. I raised a couple and ended up eating them when they got too big for the aquarium. They grow fast.
