Winner of Movie of the Year and Best Story at the Drake Video Awards. Carpland is a documentary-style adventure film about the history of carp in the United States. This non-native invasive species was introduced to U.S. waterways as a food source, and quickly spread to almost every state within a century. Prized around much of the world as a desirable menu item - and in some areas as a game fish - the name carp carries negative connotations in the U.S. pertaining to its value as table-fare and a sport fish. Why is one of the strongest and most desired international game fish overlooked by anglers in America? How do we protect wild areas and native species from being overrun with this invasive species? Should we support carp populations in areas where native species have vanished? We'll investigate these questions, and more. Filmed on location in California, Pacific Northwest, Illinois, Michigan and more.
