Carp is a common name for various species of freshwater fish from the family Cyprinidae, a large clade of ray-finned fish mostly native to Eurasia.
Carp are known for many things, such as:
  • Their role in human culture for thousands of years.
    Carp have been domesticated and bred for food, aquaculture, and ornamental purposes.
    Some of the most popular types of carp are the common carp, the grass carp, the silver carp, the bighead carp, the goldfish, and the koi.

  • Their ability to adapt to various environments and survive in low-oxygen conditions.
    Carp can tolerate a wide range of temperatures, salinities, and water quality.
    They can also metabolize glycogen to form ethanol and carbon dioxide, which allows them to survive for months without oxygen.

  • Their impact on ecosystems and biodiversity.
    Carp are often considered invasive and troublesome in many regions where they have been introduced, as they can out-compete native fish, damage aquatic vegetation, increase turbidity, and alter nutrient cycles.
    Carp control is a major challenge and expense for many countries.

Carp are fascinating and diverse animals that have influenced human history and culture, but also pose significant threats to natural habitats and resources.

The carp is native to Europe and Asia, but has been introduced to many other regions of the world as a food source or an ornamental fish.

It can survive in a variety of habitat types, but it prefers large bodies of water with slow moving currents and abundant aquatic vegetation.

Some examples of carp habitats are lakes, ponds, reservoirs, canals, and rivers.

The carp can also tolerate brackish water in the lower reaches of some rivers and coastal lakes.

It is a very adaptable fish that can cope with a range of environmental conditions, such as temperature, oxygen, salinity, and pollution.

Carp are a species of freshwater fish belonging to the family Cyprinidae.

Two barbels on each side of their upper jaw, which are whisker-like organs that help them sense food and navigate in murky water.

A large mouth that can suck in food from the bottom of the water, and teeth on the back of their throat that can crush hard shells.

A long dorsal fin that runs along their back, and a forked tail fin that helps them swim fast and change direction.
Some carp can grow very large and live for a long time.

The common carp ( Cyprinus carpio) can reach up to 1.2 meters in length and weigh up to 40 kilograms.

The koi carp ( Cyprinus rubrofuscus var."koi") is a domesticated variety of the common carp that has been bred for its colorful and ornamental appearance.

In some regions, carp are often considered an invasive species because they can compete with native fish and damage aquatic ecosystems.

However, carp are also valued as food and sport fish in many parts of the world.
