    Those carp are taking over many of the Mississippi tributaries and wiping out the local fish population. Saw a documentary on it and the growth patterns are scary.

    Yea i have been seeing the same thing...now all asian carp bought for vegetative maintenance are triploid...meaning they have 3 sets of DNA and are thus sterile ( like a mule is sterile)

    They are a big problem in the Mississippi. Their eating all the little fish. Problem is, the only fish the Mississippi has from what I understand that is bigger than them is the catfish. Catfish however don't grow near as fast as the Asian Carp do. I know of at least one fisherman that was killed because one of them jumped into him going at speed. If only they would allow you to take shotguns out there for some target practice! :devil:

    In the documentary I saw on Geo the boats had nets up to protect the passengers. It was simply amazing how many they hit.
