They are held because the fish are not ready (ripe)… the females eggs are not mature and need some more time in the female… as they mature the egg sack in the fish will extend deep into the belly of the fish… the fish are now confined into ponds and will stay there until their eggs mature and they are ready to spawn… the conditions of the pond are such that the females will hold ...
