Yes Carp can and is eaten all over the world. Even farm raised for the =

In Japan while "some" carp is eaten, most of the fish eaten are =

In China, particularly inland, carp is a very important food fish. They =
fry up
the whole fish crispy then pour a brown sauce over it.
Israel has been farm raising Carp for decades. Hungarians make a baked =
carp with paprika.
Anyone from Germany to the Eastern European countries knows Carp as a
food fish. Carp is an important ingredient in the Jewish "Gefilite =
Fish".
Once I was fishing and landed a carp..maybe 10 lbs. Some guy came up to =
me and asked
me if he could have it. Naturally I gave it to him. I asked him where he =
was from as he
had an accent and he said "Yugoslavia".
Some delicatessens that carry a wide variety of smoked fish sometimes =
carry
"sable". This is smoked carp.
Carp tend to taste muddy.Some people keep a carp alive in a tub for a =
couple of days in the hopes of getting the "muddyness" out. =
Others,especially Europeans say to eat only Winter Carp cause
they dont pick up the the muddy smell.
I tried Carp once. Simply panfried. Tasted like a boring nondescript =
"fish".
I suppose if I were starving it might taste good.
If I ever try it again I think I will smoke it.

Try Funazushi of Oumi once. It's often an awful food for many Japanese, but
the funny thing is, many Europeans seem to like it because they are used to
the smell of cheese.

You might be eating mackerel imported from Norway, and
salmon imported from Canada.

Carp is very popular in some cultures. Apparently you have to take
great care to bone it.
