When I saw the headline, America Must Kill This Fish, I was taken aback until I realized it was another article about Asian carp.
40 years ago how much did we know about sharks? Now, we're trying to pull many species back from the brink of extinction. As a matter of fact, although the movie Jaws will still scare the bejeebers out of you, its lack of knowledge is almost quaint.
Killing, the death of anything, is not a pleasant thought. Yet, the threat of Asian carp is real--not just in America but most other countries because this fish has few natural enemies and it is only in their native habitat that these enemies exist. As the arsenal of natural repellants is exhausted, we must ask ourselves,"Is this the solution?"
