First, they're going to have to come up with a better name, a la the name change from Patagonian toothfish to Chilean Sea Bass.  If the chef can throw in a "wild caught" on the menu, those carp will be on the Endangered Species list in a month.

Forget eating them,
Catch them and dump them into corn fields for fertilizer. It would really suck if these fish got into the Great Lakes.

Tell the Chinese that's it's an aphrodisiac. They'll be extinct in 5 years.

gfid: darkjezter: /Carp are trash fish.

You know what else is considered garbage fish?

Catfish and who doesn't love some good catfish?

Rename it Asian Catfish, tell people it's endangered, but invasive so any protections it may have had is waived and people will fish it to extinction.


Lionfish in the Caribbean.is another invasive fish which is so out-of-place that the only way to control it would be to turn it into a food fad.


What's not to like? It's frilly and poisonous!

ChrisDe: SomeoneDumb: I didn't think Americans ate much fish. I thought we were more slabs of dead cow people, with the occasional pig thrown in.

Americans eat a lot of everything.


Except bugs. And Asian carp. Apparently.

Sure/ If you like the taste of mud and pollution.


You'd better stay away from the tilapia.

ComaToast: Who cares what it tastes like? We can wrap it in bacon, deep fry it, add a chocolate fountain and call it Freedom Fish. Throw in some coupons for the angioplasties, because we'll need repeat customers to handle this.


Instead of chicken tenders, we'll have fish tenders. Followed by buffalo wild fins.

Enough hot sauce, lemon juice and garlic can make any fish taste good

Carp are the reason that Utah Lake is so murky.  The federal government introduced carp to the lake in the 1800s to be a cheap food source to the people living on the edge of the lake, but now they've gotten out of control and have wrecked the entire ecology of the lake in addition to negatively affecting the water quality by uprooting aquatic plants.

Thankfully, the state is going to spend the next three years removing carp from the lake so maybe one day the water will be clear and pristine again.
