Default Re: Grass Carp?

"Once young grass carp reach approximately three inches in length, they become nearly 100% herbivorous. Their feeding habits make them ideal as vegetation control agents, as they are capable of consuming 40% to 300% of their body weight per day in plant material. "
I suppose that is why in VA they are strictly catch and release.
