The threat of carp in the great lakes is real----latest news of of what is being done:

Environmental officials in Illinois plan to dump a toxic chemical into a stretch of the Chicago Sanitary and Ship Canal hoping to keep Lake Michigan safe from a species of massive and voracious fish called Asian carp. The fish, which can grow to 4 feet long and weigh 100 pounds, are known for their ability to leap up to 8 feet out of the water as motor boats speed by, injuring fishermen. Scientists fear that the fish, which can eat the equivalent of 40 percent of their body weight every day, could damage the ecosystem of the Great Lakes, which is the largest body of fresh water in the world.

I would suggest asian carp fishing tournaments, some recipes (smoked mullet, another bottom feeder is a popular in FL) and maybe cat food manufacturers' interest?

Check out the jumping silver carp! How hard can that be to catch?

Arkansas should have to pay for it.. Clowns, all they had to do was contact DNR before they stocked this aquatic pig in their ponds.

I'd heard about flying Asian carp but until I saw your video I imagined an occasional fish jumoping out of the water. This looks like a fish storm. Is that how they react to the sound of a motorboat?

BTW, aren't the tołpyga and amur sold in Poland Asian carps? Are either the same species as the flying asian carp in the USA?

I spent 3 years fish farming in Isreal. The three types farmed are St Peters Fish (which is like a silver perch somewhat like a Tilapia but I dont think it is), Silver Carp (which originated in the far East but seem to have spread throughout the world taking over many large, cooler rivers) and Common Carp. I also spent time fishing in the Jordan and its tributaries the two main fish I caught were Rainbow Trout and a fish that looked like a miniature barbel. I never found out what the miniature barbel was called but it was very plentiful and I caught it on bread paste and used them as strips of fish to catch the Trout. The only other fish I saw, but only occasionally in commercial fish ponds, was a large powerful jet black catfish with human like teeth which I think were Wells Catfish, but I cannot be sure.

The common carp is native to Europe and Asia, and has been introduced to every part of the world except the poles. They are the third most frequently introduced species worldwide, and their history as a farmed fish dates back to Roman times.
