DNR: Eat This Invasive Fish to Protect Iowa’s Native Species
OTTUMWA, Iowa -- If you take a boat down any of the main rivers or lakes in Iowa, there's a chance you'll encounter a certain type of fish - out of the water. The Silver Carp is an invasive species of fish found in parts of the Midwest and Iowa, and the vibration of a motorboat on the water can cause them to jump out, and potentially land in your boat.
