    Why not commercially harvests them and turn them into fertilizer.

    In the last century on the little lake I live on, gill netters would set nets from shore to shore and get big Buffalo carp. I asked my dad what they did with the fish. He said the fish went to St. Louis, Missouri and were processed into Gefilte fish. I don’t know if that is the truth or not, but every time I see a jar of the Gefilte fish at Passover I think of those big Buffalo carp and the men that came and caught them.

    Back when I was a kid, we used to chase big carp that got trapped in river-side farm field depressions after the spring flood receded.

    Then we'd sell the fish to the guys driving garbage trucks to the dump.

    I think it was last year that St. Louis County Parks had commercial fisherman clean out Creve Coeur Lake, Missouri's largest natural lake of Silver Carp. It is an ancient ox-bow, over 200 acres, that gets flooded by the Missouri River when it floods the bottoms. They dreg the lake from time to time and people sail and row the lake. The carp got as bad as they can get and were jumping and slamming the rowing teams and sailors. I believe they turned those fish into fertilizer.
