Maybe but the cat would be happy if you buried a few in the litter box. :D

The governor of IL had a big time chef make up a bunch of recipes for them, so that commercial interests would begin marketing them.

 

So, Bon appetit!  

Like others, I mistook the grass carp for the Asian Carp.

 

Illinois is fighting to keep the Asian Carp out of Lake Michigan. As you all know, if there is a demand for a resource, we will all but exterminate that item. That's why I have been advocating using Kudzu Vine for biofuel.

Snake head fish look so strange.

What is the flying one or jumping carp?

I watched a video of a guy shooting them with a bow.

The common name is the Asian Silver Carp
