A group of fishermen in Rome, IL are wanting to build a facility to process the fish. They are saying that instead of putting them in landfills they should send them to places that are in need of food. Gene Sperry Jr. is a commercial fisherman who says Rome would be a good place for an Asian Carp facility.
"We would like to set up a smaller facility here for local fisherman to bring their harvest crop so it can be processed or frozen or to be taken where it can be processed" says Sperry. He is fed up with seeing the fish over run a river he's been fishing on for years.
Sperry isn't the only one who can bank on the fish. If the demand for the fish is high enough owner of Dixon's Fisheries, Jim Dixon says he will get in on the supply. Dixon sells all sorts of fish at his market and says the carp really aren't that bad tasting. He says the only problem is the amount of bones in the fish.
