A Chinese man is looking for a good home for his pet carp which he says is fully trained.

Fang Peng, from Pingsai town, Guizhou Province, claims ‘Submarine’ responds to his name being called out.

Fang says the fish developed his ability to understand human speech from his father who used to spend four hours a day with him.

Fang added: “He would tie a piece of cake or bread on the top of the fishing pole and call ‘Submarine’. On hearing his name, Submarine would emerge from the water and take the food. Or I would feed him by hand.”

Fang needs to find a new home for Submarine as the river which runs into his fishing pond has been diverted for irrigation.
