U.S. Asian Carp Management Plan

Carp is processed into food. Asian carp is a freshwater fish native to Asia that includes eight species including grass carp, silver carp, bald carp and herring. They were introduced to the United States in the 1960s to clean up algae and control water quality. However, due to floods, artificial releases, and escapes, they gradually became invasive species and overflowed, causing serious harm to the ecological environment and fishery economy of the United States. Huge harm. Our hypothesis is that there is an opportunity for the Asian carp food market to grow because Asian carp can meet the needs and health standards of U.S. consumers through suitable processing methods that improve its meat quality and taste and reduce its content of heavy metals and organic contaminants. Our goal is to not only reduce the number and harm of Asian carp, but also increase aquatic resources and food supply, and create social value and public welfare impact by processing it into food and donating it as a charity item to poor areas and disaster areas.
