Businesses look to turn Great Lakes Asian carp invasion into profit through petfood, oil
Business plan in the works for area food processing plants
A group of businesses in the Great Lakes area is developing a business plan to make Asian carp, an invasive species found in the Great Lakes, into a profitable food and byproduct.
Some restaurants already serve the fish on their menus, but food processing plants now have the idea of turning the carp into petfood and fish oil. State officials have said they will look at the plan when completed.
