Carp lemonade

Missouri Conservationist



You've probably heard the adage, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade!"  Missouri has been given some lemons in the form of bighead and silver carp.  These large, plankton eating fish, native to Asia, were imported into Arkansas in the 1970s to control water quality in fish farms and sewage treatment facilities.  It didn't take long for the fish to escape to the wild, and their populations have been increasing ever since.
