Who We Are

About the Invasive Carp Consortium

Given the extensive distribution and prolific nature of the species, eradication through fishing is not a viable option. Instead, focusing on the development of enhanced carp products for human consumption and using them as an alternative protein source for animal feeds can stimulate demand for carp. This approach can lead to a reduction in the carp population while also mitigating the adverse environmental impacts linked to traditional livestock, aquaculture and animal feed production. The Consortium is the first pre-competitive, private sector-led association of supply chain actors involved in the capture, trading, processing and sales of carp products. 

Objectives of the ICC

A central tenant of the ICC is to provide education and outreach to support the growth of the market while utilizing sustainable business practices. 
The Consortium is intended to provide data and transparency into the freshwater fish industry with the goal of creating a more robust, responsible, and transparent food supply chain market.
