How does Magikarp survive?

Accroding to the Pokedex, Magikarp is the 'weakest Pokemon'. So I'm wondering, how on Earth does the thing survive?

Taken from the Anime, paired with logic from proven ecology:

Magikarp, during breeding season, lay over 1000 eggs. If all of these eggs hatch (Even just half of them, that's 500-1000 eggs from one Magikarp. Now, if you think of the 250-500 Female Magikarp from the previous generation, multiplied by 500-1000, you'll have 125 000 - 250 000 Magikarp during ONE breeding season.

Year after year, you'd slowly get more and more Magikarp. Sheesh, no wonder there's so many...

According to the games, no one knows why its so common which makes scientists experiment it. I hope I was clear to you.
