COLUMBIA — Customers at the North Village Arts District Farmers and Artisans Market will have a chance Sunday to see how Asian carp and catfish are cleaned and cooked.
The Missouri Department of Conservation staff will be at the market from 9 a.m to 1 p.m. to demonstrate the techniques at the top of the hour, every hour.
Outdoor Skills Specialist Brian Flowers said he believes the demonstration will be helpful for people who aren't familiar with the process.
"There is something really rewarding about catching a fish locally then feeding your friends and family," Flowers said in a news release about the event.
Asian carp, which are also called black, silver, and bighead carp, are an invasive, nuisance species often found in the Missouri River. The Conservation Department wants to reduce the number of the species by catching and eating the fish. There is no catch limit.
The demonstration will be held in the parking lot of the Wabash bus station, 126 N. Tenth St.
