So someone filets them by hand at some point.

That's crazy!

Most are processed and sent to Asia for human consumption.


Carp is also used for gefilte fish, although whitefish is the preferred fish

Tanker trucks full of carp and whitefish caught in cold water lakes in Wisconsin and Minnesota make their way to Jewish markets in the East to be turned into smoked delicacies easily costing $20+ a pound

Nets. You should see them jump when the net closes in on them.

I hope she catches tons and tons of them.

The boat she uses looks like a John boat on steroids. It is aluminum...and thick. Twenty eight feet long. Flat bottomed. She said they had about four inches of freeboard left when they hauled the 10,000.


cheers

In taste tests people are unable to distinguish between silver carp and cod. Cats agree.
