Carp and Ducks

It is not a very pretty day today, so I will show a photograph from a few days ago. 

In a local pond, visitors bring stale bread to feed the carp and the ducks.  When pieces of bread are tossed into the pond, the fish and the birds swarm in pursuit.  There are so many big carp that it looks like a carpet for mallards.

I couldn't decide whether to call them carp or koi.  Is there a difference?
