      Salient biological characteristics of some selected carps. Koi are a domesticated subspecies of common carp (Cyprinus carpio) that have been selectively bred for color. The common carp was introduced from China to Japan, where selective breeding of the common carp in the s in the Niigata region resulted in koi. In Japanese culture, koi are treated with affection, and seen as good luck.

These characteristics made them a good model for the study of vertebrate embryogenesis (Langeland and Kimmel, ). The common carp (Cyprinus carpio L., ) is regarded as one of the oldest suitable food fish, and its cultivation dates to the fifth century B.C. in China (Balon, ).

        Identification: Grass Carp is a large member of the minnow family with a body which is moderately compressed laterally. Its mouth is terminally located on a wide head and eyes are small and low on the head. It lacks barbels. It is olive-brown on the dorsal side, with silver sides and a white belly.   The grass carp is one of the largest members of the family Cyprinidae. In their native habitat, grass carp typically reach weights of 30–36 kg, but fish have been reported up to kg. Successful reproduction is a function of temperature, age/size, and water conditions. Fish reach maturity when about 4 years old (4–5 kg). Spawning occurs when water temperature rises above 20° by:

Use of biological characteristics of common carp (Cyprinus carpio) to indicate exposure to hormonally active agents in selected Minnesota streams, Biological aspects of common carp vary depending on the mode of management and environment in which they are growing.

This book describes in detail various important biological aspects, particularly habitat, growth and production, food habits, breeding, maturation, fecundity, and behavior of common carp, which will benefit aquaculturists, students, and scientists.

Common carp has many biological characteristics suitable for culture. Pond farming is a major type for freshwater fish culture in China. In spite of the long history of culture and domestication of common carp in China, substantial selective breeding attempts started only in the late : Xuesong Hu, Yanlong Ge, Chitao Li, Zhiying Jia, Mei Shang, Shihui Wang, Lianyu Shi.

Present study was aimed to investigate the age structure, growth parameters, natural and fishing mortality coefficients of the common carp (Cyprinus carpio) in Mangla reservoir, Pakistan. To assess the parameters and infer on the degree of exploitation, the fork length frequency data were analyzed using the FISAT (ELEFAN I) computer by: 4.

Present study was aimed to investigate the age structure, growth parameters, natural and fishing mortality coefficients of the common carp (Cyprinus carpio) in Mangla reservoir, Pakistan. To assess the parameters and infer on the degree of exploitation, the fork length frequency data were analyzed using the FISAT (ELEFAN I) computer program.

Moreover, pond culture of other species was rendered possible after introduction of carp, since the bottom-stirring habit of carp increased the biological productivity of fish ponds (Sinha and Olah, ). Carp may have significant and positive role in maintenance.

The objectives of this study were to investigate the accumulation and elimination mechanisms of bisphenols in aquatic organisms, using common carp (Cyprinus carpio) as a model. The carp were exposed to eight widely applied bisphenols (BPA, BPB, BPC, BPE, BPS, BPZ, BPAF and BPAP), each at 50 nM, for 28 d, and then allowed to depurate in clean water for 40 : Qiang Wang, Meng Chen, Liwen Qiang, Wei Wu, Jing Yang, Lingyan Zhu, Lingyan Zhu.

Common Carp, its habitats, characteristics, fishing methods and techniques. Carp are generally considered a nuisance by North American anglers, they are highly prized as sportfish in Europe, as they are often excellent fighters. A growing number of anglers in the US are becoming interested in carp.

Gomelsky. biological characteristics of a fish species for each habitat should be separately investigated and their stocks should be regularly monitored.

For this reason, some population characteristics of the carp population in the Lake Karamık, such as age, length and weight distributions, condition factors,Cited by: The economic value of the common carp is increased by the growth speed in terms of length and weight, high meat yield, non-selective habitat uses, tasty meat, and easy production availability in.

Common carp belongs to the Class Osteichthyes (the bony fishes), the Order Cypriniformes and the Family Cyprinidae. In everyday life, commercial, artisanal and sport fishers use the short scientific name Cyprinus carpio in their publications.

The common carp or European carp is a widespread freshwater fish of eutrophic waters in lakes and large rivers in Europe and Asia.

The native wild populations are considered vulnerable to extinction by the International Union for Conservation of Nature, but the species has also been domesticated and introduced into environments worldwide, and is often considered a destructive invasive species, being Class: Actinopterygii.

Other Names German Carp, European Carp Description Nongame species, no bag or size limits except on Lady Bird Lake Cyprinus is Greek, and carpio is Latin; both words mean "carp." The common carp is a heavy-bodied minnow with barbels on either side of the upper jaw.

Diseases and control: adverse changes in the natural environment, the increasing intensity of carp production in many areas, extensive inter-regional transport of common carp and other cyprinids, and the ban on using several traditional medicaments (fungicides, antibiotics and insecticides) call for the intensification of research on carp diseases.

A relatively new and promising field of research is the. Biological control measures include the use of fish, particularly the common carp Cyprinus carpio, which are effective predators of apple snails in field experiments (Halwart, ; Ichinose et al., ).

In rice paddies, fish feed on neonate snails, thereby potentially reducing snail populations, although this has not been formally demonstrated. As a group, carp provide 4 million metric tonnes of fish annually - over a quarter of all fish culture worldwide. For the first time, a book is available in English that concentrates solely on the carp as an economic rather than an ornamental fish with a panel of international experts producing a comprehensive, practical volume about carp production and management.3/5(1).

Furthermore, based on the fact that black carp attain a large size (well over 1 meter long), both juvenile and adult mussels and snails of many species would be vulnerable to predation by this fish (Nico et al.

Fish farmers report that black carp are very effective in. The common carp is regarded as a pest fish because of its widespread abundance and because of its tendency to destroy vegetation and increase water turbidity by dislodging plants and rooting around in the substrate, causing a deterioration of habitat for species requiring vegetation and .The Common carp fish is a freshwater fish species.

It is also called 'European Carp' and actually a freshwater fish of europhic waters in lakes and larger rivers in Asia and Europe. It is available throughout the world, but the native wild populations are considered vulnerable by the IUCN.

It is often considered as a destructive invasive species.The common carp (Cyprinus carpio) also referred to as the European carp, is a heavy bodied fish that can weigh up to 75 lbs, but most individuals weigh lbs at a length of inches.

The size and weight of common carp increase with age, and individuals have been recorded live 47 years or longer.
