ABSTRACT
Carp, the name of a group of freshwater fish. The common, or German, carp is about two feet (60 cm) long and weighs 25 pounds (11.3 kg) or more. It is golden olive above, lightening to yellowish-white below. It is very hardy, and some carp in European ponds may live for decades. The fish was introduced into the United States in the late 19th century. It is now especially plentiful in the Mississippi River region. While carp is valued as food in Europe, it is rarely eaten in the United States.
