Officials: Eat Asian carp to stop invasion
The Associated Press
11/03/03


Havana, Ill. - They've been called dangerous invaders. They've been called a deadly threat to other fish that inhabit the Great Lakes.
Now ecology officials and fishermen have a new name for the Asian carp: dinner.

Officials also are faced with a reality that the fish has taken a firm hold in the Illinois, Mississippi and Missouri rivers.

Big River Fish Corp. president Rick Smith has decided to put his mother's carp recipe to use and get people thinking of carp as the other white meat.

"We did that to see if we can slow them down," he said.

"And we did slow them down."
