I live in Malaysia and Asian Carp is a special delicacies serve for rich and famous people here. We will steam it or deep fry or cook it in traditional way... it really delicious fish.
Encourage the people for Fish and chips. Marinade in garlic salt and fry like the English fish and chips. The left overs can be dried and pelletted for chicken feed.

Just let a lot minority’s into your state and tell them go ape shit and catch and eat as many as you want. Trust me they’ll help. Small town White ppl hate trying new and weird things to them.

Shitloads of ways to use fish like that period
maddad621 (18 days ago)
American Wild harvested Silver Fin white flesh fish perfect for deep frying and battered fried. No farming, hormone free fish! That should be the best selling point! Why waste time trying to farm fish when the rivers and lakes in the mid West are teeming with a big bounty of fish? Should do very well with supplying the fast food market.

I’m don’t fish but I’ve watched quite a few videos and read many comments on Asian carp. It seems clear that this fish is much healthier than most fish, and probably these wild versions are the best in the world. Much better than farmed fish of many types around the world. The only issue is the bones. People have solved much harder problems and this one is begging for a solution. A great food supply that no one wants!
Stephen H (10 days ago)
I watched several videos on cooking them - the easiest way is to bake it, then use a plastic knife to cut it - the knife will cut the meat, but not the bones. Then just eat the meat.

"doesn't taste like fish at all". What's the point of eating fish if you don't want the fish flavor? Steam is the best way to cook asian carp

MartinHunter Nemisis (5 months ago)
They are an excellent table fish, we are very good at over fishing a given species, so why not do the same for these fish. I would like to see more commercial fishing for these invasive fish.. just because they are ugly doesn't mean they are not delicious!

Commercial Fishing the river for the carp.... could sell them as cat food as the USA has large cat pet population....they showed on another video they were using electricity on state fish and game boats... they herd them so start with this and catch all of them in a short period of time if they catch everything then replant the game fish.....

I love eat asian carps, because i am asian. they are much more delicious than all fishes in walmart. But i donot know where to buy them :(, walmart have no asian carps at all. and other markets also have no asian carp, i do not know where to buy them ! Just a lot of catfishes in markets, but i really dislike their tasting :(, catfish taste are so bad !
Lone Wolf (4 months ago)
Well if you love them so much get a pole and take your ass fishing there's plenty of them unwanted bastards around in Illinois. I say unwanted because they will eventually kill off other breed of fish that are crucial to other breeds of fish leading to extinction of certain species. Mark my words.

Old Carp Recipe: clean and open fish up, nail it to old chopping board and rub in olive oil, lemon, herbs slat and pepper. Bake in the oven for 2 hours and when done throw the fish away and eat the board :-)
Roy (6 months ago)
I heard people do not like carp because it is too bony. There is one solution to that. Pressure cooker! Clean the fish as usual, take out the entrails head, fins and vertebrae. Throw in your favorite spices with a generous amount of rum (or moonshine) to take out the fishy smell. Pressure cook for about an hour and voila! all the remaining small bones will be soft enough to eat. A good source of calcium too!

How about fish sticks? People who eat these don't care what fish they're made of. There are so many poor people, who would be happy to have low-priced fish to eat. There's a market for it but you have to look for the dollar -store type of customer. Or make fish soup and sell the canned soup in dollar stores.

Make fish fertilizer for gardening. Make fish sauce
southerneruk (9 months ago)
They need to start at the top off all the streams and rivers and work down, going from the bottom or midway will not get rid of them as the ones at the top will keep supply the bottom with the fry.

MetaView7 Asian Carps are not bottom feeders. They eat algae. Is more cleaner than most fish we eat. And if you buy tilapias from the markets 70%!come from China which has polluted waters.

asian protip: Steam them! feed the family
I don't get these people. I think they have a marketing problem and are too stupid to see the answer which is simple branding. The Kiwi fruit is a good example which had no market under the name the Chinese gooseberry. The state should simply build the processing out and then distribute the filets and "poppers" as a re-branded product. The cost should be so low that building the market should be easy. The poppers can be on all aircraft as hors-d'oeuvre as they use to on Hawaiian flights with macadamia nuts and in every bar in the Midwest for free or at very low cost. If it's that good then it will just sell by itself. After all, the Japanese built a market for Selami and Saloni as "fake crab" and that's made of "junk fish." These people are just both stupid and dumb.
Khamomil (8 months ago)
Yeah, it's a perception issue and there's a need for rebranding and marketing. This fish is in fact a fantastic resource with so many possible uses it boggles the mind. Bring people with fresh ideas and no pre-conceived bias against the fish and that species will be fished into extinction in no time.

Why don't you guys use a fish wheel like in Alaska.
The waters are navigable and a fish weel is considered to be a hazard to navigation.

The figuring figure must have sense problem. These carps are edible fish. Can be eaten and still saleable. Catch it clean it freezes it and sell it abroad. The fish has got good fat..far east nation breed the fish for protein. Warm tropic countries. Eastern European states eat the carps too.. Actually... This should be treated as blessing in disguise... Catch n export it .. at cost of nothing to rear it. So important to China was a good business.. hong Kong too..

It's certainly healthier than farmed fish.

BRAVOZULU DWEST boathouse (10 months ago)
grind them up freeze dry them add some corn/millet (any carb) pellet them feed them to chicken and hogs then americans would get a lower price for those foods
Khamomil (8 months ago)
They have an attitude of defeat before a calamity. The smart American would see an opportunity. Life gives you lemons, so you make lemonade. Asian carp? Take people on a boat tour and money-back guarantee they'll come back with at least one fish because you don't need to know how to fish to catch it. It falls in your lap. How many fish do that?
These Midwesterners are just too dumb to do the many things that have been suggested here.
BRAVOZULU DWEST boathouse (10 months ago)
hoosiers would eat rocks if you let them
desiguy55 (10 months ago)
want to finish off asian carps? let McDonald's handle it, they can make any fish tasty, properly breaded , fried, and served in a bun.
Exactly, these Midwesterners are just too dumb to do the deals needed to make the issue go away. they seem only good at news coverage.
