    The "jumping" carp were originally farmed for human consumption.
    They are a domesticated species that was released into US waters.
    Cleaning requires care as they have many small bones.

    I've seen videos of guys shooting them in the air with fish arrows (fewer boats were around).  Obviously, it isn't an efficient way to eradicate them, but it would be fun.  Bowfishing for regular carp is a blast, but all you get for it is a carp.  I've filleted a few and quietly watched while other people ate them (both knowingly and unknowingly).  I didn't hear any complaints, but they are a pain to clean.  However, you guys in Florida can bowfish for tilapia, can't you?  That would result in a tastier product.

    Take note, when you are sitting in the front of the boat, and carp are flying at you from all angles, YOU SHOULD PAY ATTENTION!!!!
