Asian Carp Spread like the Plague
Introduced to the United States in the 1970’s as filters for commercial fish ponds, the Asian Carp has quickly become established in many waterways around the country.

Asian Carp are voracious eaters and will dominate aquatic ecosystems by devouring the same food that sustains native fish populations. In the Illinois River, where they grow so large they have no natural predators, they are approaching the Great Lakes.

If the Great Lakes are invaded by the Asian Carp, they could devastate the regions $7 billion fishing industry and permanently alter the large inland lake. This would also put many US and Canadian rivers which feed the Great Lakes in danger as well.

Carp-to-Fertilizer Option to Remove Invasive Fish - 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.
