the correct answer is "we don't know". There is no hint of a fish other than in the question, so, you can assume the German owns a fish, because he is the only one left after going through all the hints, but the fact is he might own a cow or anything else.

It's actually a yak, not a cow (they do look similar from a distance :-). The German likes to dress it up and put make-up on it. There are some videos somewhere...

German is the answer

Anonymous, we KNOW the German has the fish because logic states that each nationality keeps one of the animals listed and each nationality cannot keep more than one animal... I am going to bet you didn't solve this puzzle... lol
