Can We Eat our Way out of the Invasive Species Problem?
As our world becomes more and more interconnected, the spread of invasive species is becoming a global environmental problem in rural communities and large cities alike, with China subject to its own levels of threat.  According to a report about China's ecology released by the Ministry of Ecology and Environment of the People’s Republic of China, 660 invasive species have been found in China, 77 of which pose a threat or potential threat to the natural ecosystem.

For example; imported as feed for horses, common water hyacinth infested China when the need for horses dropped after WWII.  

Unfortunately, the answer is a resounding no. First, the majority of these invasive species are simply inedible. Second, even for those that are edible and find themselves in the media spotlight such as the crawfish, the breeds that exist in the wild are drastically different from those which end up in a pot of boiling water or on your kitchen table.

Eating wild crawfish, oysters, snails, or carp comes with a much higher risk of conveying bacteria, viruses, and parasites given that they sometimes dwell in heavily polluted bodies of water.
