and, though it doesn't fit the "Old Horse" part of the clue, "to bellyache" is, in a way, to (10) carp

Also correct - though I think it does, a la PG & fabby.

That leaves 3,4,5,6, & 11,12. :)

Kipper?

You're in the right body of water, I think. As far as I'm aware, what I have in mind is considered different.

emperor? skipper? sergeant major vs grunt?

Sorry, none of these.

The descriptors are for a very American thing.

clam & oyster?

Nope. The difference would be in the riddle 'style' ... more or less.

Knots?

Grouper

Sorry Wb, neither of those. But welcome to the Den! :)

I was just about to post this, when I saw Williebear had just posted it and you denied it as the solution.

Grouper (Red Grouper, White Grouper, and Blue Grouper)???

As to the riddle 'style', am I correct in...

The clue is a 'cryptic crossword'-like clue, with the word "off" hinting that the other letters are "out of place", i.e., an anagram? E.g., "Turn keys to shear" comprises the letters for oyster (as it does shark, ray, skate and a few other fishes)
