CARP

carp

Although carp are members of the minnow family, they can live more than 10 years and reach up to 10 pounds. They can often be seen thrashing in shallow water during their spring spawning. Since there are no nests or care of the young, many eggs are lost and females can carry 2 million. They are not native to our area, having been introduced released into the wild from private ponds in the 1830s. carp
