A Popular Freshwater Sport Fish

Originating from the carp family, Cyprinidae, the common rudd is indigenous to the freshwater lakes and rivers of Europe and Asia. Unfortunately, it is also widely spread throughout North America, where it is an invasive species called American, or pearl, roach. Within its natural distribution, the common rudd is usually found around the freshwater basins of the North, Baltic, Black, Caspian, and Aral seas.
