    It’s a creative and interesting thought, but that would be a little like raising Spitting Cobras in the backyard for their meat.

    The accompanying URL suggest that many countries around the world are desperate to stop it, and many kinds of control are being used. Note in particular that even small fragments of the plant can propagate, and so, for example Washington state requires that when the plants are cut they are removed from the water.

    A few species of waterfowl, fish and insects eat it, which is not especially promising for human consumption.

    So in sum, no one is suggesting humans eat it casually, and unsurprisingly no one that I could find is suggesting raising it as a commercial food crop.
