Season 2

Episode 102: Asian Carp

Asian Carp are quickly becoming the invasive species to beat. They are showing up and taking over in rivers across the country and threatening native species by out-competing fish for the plankton that forms the base of the aquatic food chain. The fish may be present in the Twin Cities as well. What better way to head home, than to meet with a fisherman who was tackling the very fish who could soon be greeting us in our home state. We went out with a fisherman on the Peoria River and got to see what our future hopefully doesn’t hold. note: these fish are eaten, despite being heavy on bones, they are quite tasty.
