“Carp” is the family of fish that includes the Prussian Carp, the species domesticated into the common “Goldfish.” Carp includes more species than just goldfish, and all goldfish are carp.
Goldfish are actually in the carp family. They were originally domesticated from the Prussian carp (Carassius gibelio), a dark greyish brown carp native to Asia. It was first bred for color in China over 1,000 years ago. Due to selective breeding, goldfish have been developed into many distinct breeds and are now found in various colors, color patterns, forms and sizes far different from those of the original domesticated carp.
Japanese Koi are also a type of carp.
