This native species of carp was once widely distributed across the British Isles but is now experiencing extirpation due to competition in habitats where it does not thrive. The most significant threats are caused by introduced species; such as the closely related and often confused with Prussian carp Carassius gibelio, a subspecies of the congeneric goldfish Carassius auratus which could lead to local extinction in many of their native areas (Smartt, 2007).
