I know that they are trying to start a commercial fishery for the silver carp that was brought here from asia, and is now very invasive and causing problems. I don’t know if it tastes good. I really dislike tilapia, and when they say that the carp is almost as good, it doesn’t make me want to go out to buy some. Recently, I saw that the Snakehead fish, from Thailand has invaded Arkansas, and is headed to invade a dozen states. Unlike the carp, the snakehead is at the top of the food chain. I wonder if it tastes like bass? It looks like fun to catch.
Since my original posting, I looked on the internet. Some folks say the the snakehead DOES taste good, and I discovered that the TV show that I saw may be old, because the snakehead is already in a lot of states, including my own.
In many states, including my own, it is not legal to fish in fresh water, to catch fish to sell. Maybe it should be legal to sell snakeheads to restaurants.
