The scientific name for these carp are Cyprinus carpio :) They're very common as an invasive species, and I in fact found an old study on this particular lake that identified the carp population as C. carpio. Fascinating that they congregate like that.

Pymatuning lake, PA, just an area where people can feed the fish. Pretty amazing though.
