bad fish

these carp are an invasive species
that can eat up to 40% of their body weight each day
which leaves little food for native fish

I keep hearing about them. It's good to see just what these invasive fish look like.

These Asian carp are real trouble, dangerous to native fish and fisherman alike.

I had no idea about this. I guess the warning may apply to Australian waters too.

Bad news for the native species...
Thanks for hosting!

I still don't know if I would recognize one. It is going to be hard to stop them!

A good sign to alert us who are not familiar with the different kinds of carp.
