The invasive Asian Carp is the topic of discussion on this week’s “Behind The Editor’s Curtain.” For the last several years, Jill Moon, a reporter and editor for The Telegraph, Alton, IL, has followed the Asian carp issue.
Moon talks with Don Corrigan about the carp invasion, the environmental and economic issues they create, and a few of the efforts underway to curb their spread.
One solution to slow the spread is to start eating the leaping carp. Working to convince Americans the Asian carp can be a tasty option is Chef Philippe Parola, according to Moon. She describes the experience of sampling different recipes using the invasive fish, such as soup and carp cakes.
