Asian Carp

Flying Fish, Great Dish (Part 1: Introduction & Removing Filets)

Asian carp is an invasive fish species that has rapidly taken over ecosystems in parts of the Mississippi River and Missouri River regions. These fish (Asian carp consist of silver carp (or "flying fish") and bighead carp) have been voraciously consuming plankton, leaving less food for native fish; which has a negative impact on these environments. In addition, Asian carp have been causing harm to people by jumping into boats. What can humans do about this problem? We can catch them according to individual states' laws, thereby helping to deplete their staggering populations. But, its not only about solving problems; Asian carp are also an excellent fish to eat – offering large, low-fat, nutritious filets. This video provides background information about these fish and describes one of the first steps in the cleaning process – removing the filets. This segment is the first in a series of three that teach you how to turn flying fish into a great dish!
