Edible carp are all the same genus and species, Cyprinus carpio, although some selectively bred fish are known as King carp. The domestic Mirror carp and Chinese Hi-goi are named for the quality of their scales, as their taste varies little. Recently introduced varieties include the Bighead grass, which has fewer bones. Carp is available live, fresh, or frozen, either split lengthwise or filleted.
