Do Asian carp eat fish?

    Asian carp are filter feeders, and their main diet is plankton. This also makes fishing for them a little more difficult, so a net is usually used instead of a traditional hook.

    Not really, carp feed mainly on plankton.  Some species also eat muscles, clams, and other invertebrates, but there hasn’t been much documentation of them eating other fish.  However, they are still deadly to other fish just because their size allows them to outcompete other fish for food.  This is why they are causing so many problems with the native fish in America.
