Carp-to-Fertilizer Option to Remove Invasive Fish
The carp population in Lake Lowell has created an environmental mess — creating the most toxic algae bloom in the Gem State, upsetting wildlife balance and making the lake less attractive for human visitors.

Leave it to the creative genius of private enterprise to come up with a solution — one that potentially could save the lake.

Thomas Lansing, a commercial fisherman-turned-entrepreneur, has proposed a productive use for all this carp. He could turn the fish into fertilizer and sell it online or through retail outlets and make a nice profit. If enough carp is taken out of the lake, it could restore some environmental balance and bring back bass and other fish species.

The problem is getting millions of pounds of carp out of the lake. Opening the lake for commercial fishermen, and paying around 15 cents per pound harvested, is an idea that has merit. Enterprising fishermen could rake in $750,000 by taking out five million pounds of the fish. Increase the ante to 30 cents, and fishermen could be swarming the lake as if they were panning for gold.

Closing in on ALS? Link Between Lethal Disease and Algae - Scientists are investigating whether breathing a neurotoxin produced by algae may raise the risk of developing Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), or Lou Gehrig’s disease. They have a long way to go, however: While the toxin does seem to kill nerve cells, no research, even in animals, has confirmed the link to ALS.
