It’s still carp to me, but Kentuckians might see things differently. This is from the Rural Blog:
In January, we reported on a Louisiana effort to market invasive Asian carp as “silverfin” and to sell the fish as food. Now a group of Kentucky researchers are attempting a similar project. A group of Kentucky State University researchers think the fish haven’t caught on as food because of the reputation associated with bottom-feeding carp, so they are calling them “Kentucky tuna,” reports Katheran Wasson of The State Journal in Frankfort.
The taste is described as a cross between scallops and crabmeat, so maybe there’s a possibility.
REPORTER GRANTS: Another interesting item from the same Rural Blog:
The Arkansas Press Association has chosen five newspapers in the state for grants to hire an extra reporter for two years, at a salary of $35,000 a year, with the hope of improving news coverage.
