Frakkin' carp, the European variety are a major problem here in oz, ploughing up river beds, displacing native fish, and generally making one helluva mess.

We've had a bit of respite recently, as they're not as drought tolerant as native species, so the locals have made a bit of a comeback. First real rains we get, there'll be a billion of the frakkers hatching, and we'll be back at war.

They call em a "trash fish" and kill them in the hundreds. Then leave em on the bank to spoil. EAT WHAT YOU CATCH. Wasting fish... ANY fish is a sin.

I've tried carp out here. The best they can do is "edible." If the asian carp is anything like that, "tasting good" is not likely.

Here is what I say!

If all you have is lemony carp, then make lemony fertilizer!

I sure hope the Steelerheaders and Salmons and Brown Leon Troutskys eat them.

Have a great day!

____ The problem with an invasive species is that there are no predators. They become the the master predator, and by the time that these fish get to catch them for fertilizer size they have eaten most of the photo-plankton that all the other fish need also.

There was an interesting 'genetic warfare' suggestion for the European Carp problem here in oz.

There's a gene that causes all of a fishes offspring to be male. Use genetic engineering techniques to make a few hundred of those fish, and release them in the rivers.

They mate with some girl fish, and produce a batch of sons...
who mate with some girl fish and produce a batch of sons...
who mate with some girl fish and produce a batch of sons...
who can't find any girl fish to mate with.

Problem solved!

Fish can be forced to breath it, not that they like to though.
