    Hi all.

    I've heard from different sources that a pregnant fish is called:-
    • Git
    • Twit
    • Twat
    But does anyone know which, of these is true?
    Just trying to clear up a debate in the office!!

    twit is correct
    pratt is used if it is a gravid goldfish
    (gravid is the term used to describe egg laden fish)

    Haha - according to this, a juvenile cod is a "sprat" and a juvenile Mackrel, a "Blinker or Tinkar". Interesting....
