    Whether the Asian varieties are or not, people think of any kind of carp as an oily, nasty bottom feeder.  There would have to be a lot of effort put into a possibly unsuccessful information campaign.

      The food in the dormitories was so bad I did not eat most of the entrees; they were greasy, bland, and gave me indigestion. So I went fishing in the Cannon River that flows through campus and caught ordinary carp (Cyprinus carpio)(the Asian and bighead varieties had not yet been introduced to the US) and carefully filleted them and broiled some and fried some. I love to eat nearly all fish, but the carp cooked either way tasted so nasty and muddy, that I threw it all away after only a few bites. It was worse than the dorm food.

      The only way to cook carp is to put it on a board, season to taste, cook until flaky, then throw away the fillets and eat the board.
