Turning Asian Carp Invasion Into Food, Fertilizer and Fuel

The 2008 flooding in this region, and the pollution of the river from the sewage, chemicals, and fuel; clouds this issue with an even darker omen: the possible killing off of segments of the river. [1]


Ted Roger Karson proposes harvesting the millions, if not billions of carp that have infested the Mississippi River system over the last few years, to use for food, fertilizer, and biofuel; turning a pestilence into an opportunity.

Asian Carp are a "clean" fish, suitable for eating; and what is not used for food could be processed for either fertilizer or biofuel. The carp feed at the top of the river on plankton, and are competing with the native fish. They average 10-15 pounds, 12-16 inches long, but can get up to 4-5 feet, and 100 pounds. They eat up to half their body weight in one day.

Karson is not inclined to pursue this as a business venture himself, but is glad to see someone else take it and run with it.

As you will see, boaters are being bloodied and a mighty river is being ruined. Now the carp are headed for the Great Lakes with potentially devastating consequences.

Barge Harvesting Proposal

On October 11, 2009, Jim Miller <jimmiller5417 {at} gmail.com> wrote:

I am pursuing a possible business venture by harvesting mass quantities of Asian Carp, sorting out the live game fish for return to the river, processing the larger carp for food and grinding what is left, boiling the mush, extracting the oil and selling the fish meal or using it in compost. A rendering barge would follow the harvester. I have three potential partners, one in FL and one in AZ. I also have some ideas on how to fund the equity part of a federal grant for matching funds.

I wonder if anyone has tried an IC on house boats on rivers? A floating community. Think of it. One boat is the harvester, which passes the fish mush to the second boat - a barge - which passes the oil, dried fish meal to the third boat -- the fish processing "mother boat" which takes the live, larger fish from the harvester. I have the plan on paper and am fleshing out the details. The house boats, which support the entire crew and workers, come along at the rear and tie up to docks during the night. On another barge we could have a biodiesel plant, taking its feedstock fish oil directly from the rendering barge.
