The Carp Buster
The Carp Buster
Our very own J.D. Johnson is adding a new title to his list of restaurateur, caterer, owner of Middle TN largest Seafood distributor and now….Carp Buster.
As interviewed by WSMV seen here.
Johnson is actively making a difference by taking an active role in fighting the Asian Carp menace. With years of experience in the fishing and seafood industry, Johnson brings a logical viewpoint into this war. A viewpoint that not only knows how to win this war, but a lifetime of knowledge and insight on all of the ecosystems that this invader species is destroying.
Working with Carp Management Group of America LLC, Johnson knows the best way to fight this invasive species is to grow a demand for consumption. This will not only protect our native ecosystems, but will provide jobs and food for some of the states that have been hit hardest by the economy. States ranging from Tennessee to Illinois have been hit hard by the Asian Carp - and without any natural predators, these fish are here to stay.
Asian Carp are very quick, reproduce often, and have grown to such numbers that other marine life are running out of food. Combine this with their tendency to jump and skip out of the water, puts this 20lb-30lb (and up!) fish as not only an invasive species, but a threat to boaters, casual fishermen, and families having fun on the lake. Numerous injuries have already been cited to this menace.
Gulf Pride Seafood is dedicated to providing quality seafood to middle TN. With the invasion of Asian Carp, we fear some of our favorite American marine life are in danger as well as our communities. J.D. Johnson and the entire Gulf Pride Seafood team are dedicated to doing what they can to continue providing quality products as well as ensuring they take a role of responsibility for the environment.
