The bighead carp (whole fish) is a species of freshwater fish, one of several Asian carps. It is one of the most intensively exploited fishes in aquaculture, with an annual worldwide production of over three million tonnes in 2013, principally from China. It is also the third most consumed fish in the United States, where it was introduced in 1973. Bighead carp are native to large rivers and lakes in southern China but have been widely distributed as a result of releases from aquaculture facilities, which began as early as 1966. It has also been introduced into aquatic habitats in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Israel, South Korea, Japan, and the United States. Bighead carp are often used to perform phytoremediation to clean up waterways by removing nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus from contaminated waters. Bighead carp grow rapidly to approximately, reaching within its first year of life. Although they can grow at rates per day, the average growth rate of bighead carp is. Bigheads adapt to most water conditions but prefer large bodies of slow or standing water with soft bottoms, such as lakes, ponds, and backwaters. The average length at sexual maturity for bighead carp is approximate, while females are slightly larger than males. Spawning occurs in rivers or lakes with gravelly bottoms. Bighead carp are omnivores, feeding mostly on zooplankton and phytoplankton. They also feed near the surface of the water where there is more light penetration, avoiding the deeper parts of a body of water where there isn't as much solar energy for photosynthesis. Their diet includes aquatic insects, insect larvae, frogs, crayfish, and mollusks. Bighead carp are filter feeders that eat phytoplankton and planktonic organisms such as zooplankton. They also consume sediments at the bottom of the river or lake, which consists of decaying organisms. Bighead carp are not an important food source for humans, but their high concentrations of omega-3 fatty acids make them useful in aquaculture feeds. Their schooling behavior also renders them vulnerable to harvest with conventional fishing gear. Bighead carp are native to large rivers and lakes in southern China but have been widely distributed as a result of releases from aquaculture facilities, which began as early as 1966. It has also been introduced into aquatic habitats in Spain, Portugal, Italy, Israel, South Korea, Japan, and the United States. In many cases, their introduction was likely via fish farm escapes. Bighead carp are often used to perform phytoremediation to clean up waterways by removing nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorus from contaminated waters. The bighead carp is the third most consumed fish in the United States, where it was introduced, according to National Geographic Magazine. They were introduced into aquaculture systems in 1973; however, they escaped into natural waters between 1977 and 1985 during flooding events.
