Eat the Enemy! A Complete Guide to Asian Carp
Join the Asian Carp Revolution! The Complete Guide To Catching and Cooking Asian Carp.
There is an increasing ecological disaster going on right now which has infected the major river systems and surrounding wetlands of America. Hidden below the surface of muddy waters throughout the land, from southern Florida to the Canadian border, Asian carp are ravaging ecosystems, destroying native fish populations and wildlife habitat, and now threaten to enter the Great Lakes. These invasive species have also negatively impacted regional economies that depend on renewable natural resources for their financial health.
Millions of dollars are being spent annually by Federal and State Governments to control the damage done by these fish, with little or no impact. The Asian carp continue to multiply exponentially and destroy all in their path. Natural resource experts have come to firmly believe that the only viable solution to the long-term management of these fish is to promote large-scale harvesting and utilization efforts through both commercial and recreational fishing.
Silver and bighead Asian carp have been a highly prized staple of nutrition in their native countries for thousands of years, but in America, they’re considered worthless “trash fish.” In recent years, however, scientists, health experts, and gourmet chefs have discovered that these fish are incredibly delicious and one of the healthiest on the planet! In blind taste tests, Asian carp have been preferred almost unanimously over other highly favored fish. Most intriguingly, because silver and bighead Asian carp are filter feeders, they do not bioaccumulate toxins as most other popular eating fish on the market do, making them a healthy choice for regular consumption.
In Eat the Enemy, author Joseph Classen offers a complete guide to harvesting and utilizing this organic, beyond-sustainable, wild-caught, locally harvested food source, which is currently going to waste! This book explores the following topics:
