Seems like a silly question but why can’t stratified sampling be used? It is because it’s random? Would we need to use quota sampling?

No this is part of Edexcel’s assessment materials, so any advice would be much appreciated!

Don’t know if this is right but you wouldn’t use stratified random because the population is too large therefore it would be an impractical method. Instead maybe use systematic sampling at regular intervals. Hope that helps! 🙂

Not my area, but I think the main issue isn't the size of the population, but the practical impossibility of separating the population into strata to sample from.

Sorry I can’t help with the question... Are these resources available on their website? :-)

how is it practically impossible? because its hard to catch the exact amount of each fish?

Wikipedia: Stratified sampling is not useful when the population cannot be exhaustively partitioned into disjoint subgroups

Good luck exhaustively partitioning the fish in a lake...
