Carp is entirly edible and some say it is very good as long as you gut it properly, in Canada and most of usa you can take home carp. in north America i don't even think there is a quota... but check

my guess is vegetation from the bottom of the pond. Of course fisherman would put bait in to the lakes (ground bait) and they could eat that :)

Carp are omnivores. They will eat decaying plant and animal matter from the floor of the river, pond, or other body of water that they inhabit.

Yes, they won't bother them.the Carp and Koi are among the same family and are scrap eaters. they dont eat other fish, they eat the scraps they find to be tasty in the bottom of the lake or pond. this is why most people dont recommend eating them

Koi is a type of Carp and will eat anything that is on the bottom of the pond or lake. They are omnivores, just like humans. I have caught carp with worms as well as corn. Koi, however need a special diet to keep their colors vibrant, so purchase commercially made food instead of allowing them to forage on their own. Oh, they also will eat mosquito larvae if they can catch them.

No, carp do not eat dogs. See the related question.
