Asian Carp

Go deep into Tennessee waters in search of a scary invader that's good enough to eat.

Sometimes good intentions can have disastrous results. It must have seemed like a good idea back in the 70s for people who wanted to control algae blooms in farm ponds, and improve wastewater treatment, by using a foreign fish. Their plan backfired and work is continuing to try and stop the havoc that was unleashed.

One philosophy that’s surfaced is – “If we can’t beat em… let’s eat em. It takes special equipment to remove the bones of Asian Carp… and North American Caviar has one… thanks to a TWRA grant. It seems that these fillets… similar in size to chicken tenders… are the best way to please very particular human pallets.
