European Carp are the most invasive and destructive fresh water fish in the world. They destroy river systems and displace native fish. Each fish lays one million eggs per year, that is three times that of our native fish. Carp are bottom dwellers so they suck up the mud and silt from the bottom of the waterways, then spit it out muddying and dirtying up the water and undermining the riverbanks. This makes it impossible for our native fish to live and grow in healthy waterways.
The carp are supplied to us from licensed commercial fishermen, who catch them in the lakes and rivers either using nets or electro fishing. The fish must be either snap frozen or fresh on ice - we cannot use rotten fish in our production processing.
