Seafood carbon emissions tool Common carp (Cyprinus carpio), Farmed, System: Ponds, Notes: Carp production systems have not received enough attention from LCA studies, given their importance to global fish production. Several studies have provided energy use values for intensive and semi-intensive pond production, with a wide range of results. Feed inputs may vary substantially in these systems, particularly if systems are multi-trophic, multi-species, or integrated with agricultural production. The calculated values here assume that production includes the use of compound feeds, which is not always the case; some systems may not require feed inputs or may only use compound feeds to supplement other food sources.

Seafood carbon emissions tool Common carp (Cyprinus carpio), Farmed, System: Paddy fields, Notes: Carp production systems have not received enough attention from LCA studies, given their importance to global fish production. One study reported energy use rates for rice paddy production of carps, but it is expected that the extent to which these systems rely on both feed and energy is likely to range considerably. It is also unclear the extent to which methane emissions from rice paddies may contribute to the relative footprint of fish grown in these environments. Feed inputs may vary substantially in these systems, particularly if systems are multi-trophic, multi-species, or integrated with agricultural production. The calculated values here assume that production includes the use of compound feeds, which is not always the case; some systems may not require feed inputs or may only use compound feeds to supplement other food sources.
