Where was this? I would love to try scarping. I like those guys. We’d get along just fine.
Wow, the canal will be a busy place for two months.
Only Barkley and not ky lake? Seems to me you'd have to do both to have an impact.
Processing plant in ky
I don’t understand caring if the fish are processed and used or not, if you truly want to eradicate them. It doesn’t make sense. Kill them at all costs. If you try and develop a market for them to establish value....they will never go away
Providing a market for them gives people an incentive to get involved. it would be like crab fishermen doing salmon fishing in the off season
If there is a market...they have value. If they are valuable, they aren’t going anywhere. It’s completely antithetical to wanting to reduce their numbers. Kill them all and light them on fire.
No way to eradicate them, only reduce their numbers. Some type of market is the only way to make it worth while to commercially fish for them.
I understand but their numbers won’t reduce and if they were somehow reduced....the market would dictate a reduction in harvest.
From what we witnessed last night on a 2 mile stretch of the Ohio, it would be mind boggling to know how many millions or tens of millions of fish are in the river. Then you have the Mississippi full of them also, an endless supply that's growing exponentially.
As abundant as things can be we should never assume there is no way they will go extinct. We are currently depleting the ocean of its wildlife and thats the frickin ocean. Look at the story of the orange roughy. Wikipedia has a good page.
Ed does have a point, after substantial depletion there may be a market kickback or just a government regulation that comes into effect to 'save' the carp for sustainable harvesting. This could happen. But... unsure if anything could be set up with the temporary agreement that the harvest would be a temporary venture.. intentionally.
Know what id like to see is a boat with a corn picker type apparatus at the front, when it goes down lakes and those guys are jumping out of the water it just files em on back into a catch trolley that can be docked and exchanged for an empty one.
