Distribution and Value of Carp

CARP This fish, known as "German carp", is a freshwater food fish of great interest to fish culturists, and is found in ponds and streams in nearly every state in the Union. As a result of domestication several varieties have arisen of which the principal ones are the "scale carp", heavily scaled; the "mirror carp", with a few series of very large scales; and the "leather carp", which is scale less. The size of the carp varies with the temperature and clearness of the water, the kind of bottom, the abundance and nature of the food supply, and in general with the conditions under which it lives. These fish live to a great age, and sometimes attain a weight of more than 40 pounds. The carp naturally thrives best in lakes, ponds and sluggish streams, seeking quiet or stagnant waters. It spawns about June. It feed largely on vegetable matter, insects and their larvae, found on aquatic vegetation, forming its principal animal food. It will, however, eat practically anything it can get into its mouth, rooting about in the mud much in the way of a pig.

The German carp product in 1908 amounted to 42,763,000 pounds, valued at $1,135,000. Of 38 states having fisheries of a commercial nature, 31 reported German carp. The catch of Illinois, most of which was from the Illinois River, exceeded that of all other states combined. Although carp is caught to some extent throughout the year, the largest part of the fishing is done in spring and summer. A variety of apparatus is used in taking carp, but the bulk of the catch is made with seines, fyke and hoop nets, and trammel nets.
