Carp are the backbone of a growing aquaculture industry. Ornamental koi carp fascinate hobby breeders. Carp allow for scientific progress as a model species in laboratories, concern ecosystem managers as an invasive species, and mesmerize anglers as big game. This book covers all these facets of carp.

Informative and engaging contributions from experts renowned in their fields present original results and review the current state of research on carp. Thirteen cross-linked chapters provide an easily accessible and exhaustive treatise of carp aquaculture, natural and artificial reproduction, feeding and growth, ecosystem effects of carp, and effects of disease agents and toxic substances on carp. Colour illustrations and infoboxes help the reader navigate technical terms and complex concepts, explaining how carp interact with their natural or artificial environments.

This book is suitable for everyone interested in carp—from scholars to anglers.
