I just saw that Fox River is having a carp round-up. I'll probably participate but first... Why is this round-up necessary? Are carp more prevalent in the Fox River Watershed than the rest of Wisconsin? Is this an annual population control thing? Is this even sanctioned by the DNR?
I know a lot of fishermen have prejudices against carp and in some cases that prejudice is justified. If I participate in this round-up, am I helping to control a population that might be growing too big or am I taking part in an extermination program of a stable population?
