Gefilte fish, properly prepared and cooked well, goes well with Matzos and Mogen David. Some high hat snubs don't know what they are missing. I am not Jewish. If caught in large amounts, clean A Class Carp meat, can be dehydrated and be given to severely malnourished kids, not only off shore but in our neighborhoods,qualities of protein powder can be made available everywhere. China could be a good buyer. Less than ideal forms can be mixed with animal feed. They can keep their Tilapia.

Look. I know all about Carps. We have them here in the millions and yes, they are destroying the rivers, lakes and waterways. If the Carps are not native to that river, then they should be exterminated at all costs. We fish then out for rivers and leave them to die on the banks. I know it's cruel but what we don't see is how cruel these Carps are when they compete and eradicate native fishes. Because Carps grow very big, they eat small fish and fry, theirs and native fish, eggs and all. Carps do not discriminate. Put them in a large pond filled with native fish and watch. In a few days, the native fishes are all gone, Carp population has increased and the pond is all murky because they also eat Yabbies, Shrimps, Mussels, worms, anything they can find. Then that pond water is unsuitable for animal drinking, but only good for watering vegetables. There is no sorrow now sympathy with Carps here. They're not native and are everywhere, including our Murray River, the largest river. 100 years ago it was clear water, not anymore because these monsters stir the silt and turn the water murky. We try to eradicate them but it's hard as there are too many, in every river and have to be careful not to harm native fishes. They taste earthy and can only be smoked to eat.

One solution is to ask help from big fast-food restaurants like McDonalds, Burger King, Harveys, ...etc. The government could incentivise these companies to create a "Asian Carp" fish scandwitch that could be solde of "reasonnable" price. That would quickly create a big demand.

If you give them cars to drive, they'll kill themselves off. (I'm Asian btw, so please don't get mad at my dumb reverse racist joke.)

Inept government officials should immediately allow cast net fishing for asian carp. I mean come on! They have a problem and uninformed government officials are standing in the way. (AS usual) Lets act to solve this!
Ed Loki (11 days ago)
They allow that already. You just need to get a permit for cast net fishing and you're not allowed to take certain species with it.

This could feed millions of school kids ( fish sticks, patties)... make countless tons of old fashioned fertiliser... and make tons and tons of dog and cat good.

There’s a million things to do with them and they grow exponentially every year. Nice white meat, I’d try it.

Develop a genetic defect that causes high mortality and introduce them to the population.
Andy Wolf (14 days ago)
Cut em up and feed them to the other fish.
alan30189 (15 days ago)
They need to find out their breeding habits. That could be a big part of the solution in eradicating them, but we are probably stuck with them. Getting them on the menus of restaurants would help.

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 (2 months 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.

It's the name "carp". People confuse it with the common carp, which aren't good to eat.

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!
Mick Carson (1 day ago)
Of course Carps are healthier. They eat, eat, eat, till they eat themselves when food runs out.
Stephen H (2 months 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.

If someone could find a way that fast food chain restaurants could sell them like the old fish and chips places that would help.

"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 (6 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 (6 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.

Doesn't it figure that desirable, beautiful, and good-eating fish that are great sport fish are getting scarce in our fresh water lakes and streams while these "pieces of carp" are breeding like rats?

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 (8 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!

Japanese people eat them as sashimi, sushi, koikoku(soup), syabusyabu. But don't recommend to eat them raw. Eat them cooked. http://kyoudo-ryouri.com/en/food/2185.html
