Carp Blanche


Just when it seemed that we had inherited all of the animal kingdom's cast-offs (we're not even getting into humans...), the Mighty Mississippi brought the giant, flying fish from up North. The LSU AgCenter says that the spring flooding and subsequent opening of the Bonnet Carre Spillway has deposited a heap of Asian carp into Lake Pontchartrain.

 

Once, fish farmers hoped they could harvest the gargantuan fish for food, but now they're threatening the ecosystems of the Great Lakes, and jumping into boats faster than even Ernie would be able to beckon them (Coincidentally, this is not seen as a good thing, as they've been known to hurt people).

 

Nevertheless, it seems they pass the crucial Cajun test. As the following useful AgCenter video informs us, you can eat 'em, and they taste good, too!
