A Culinary Approach to an Environmental Problem

Come sample Silver Carp at the Culinary Development Kitchen on Tuesday, February 10 from 12:00-1:30pm! Multiple dishes will be served that feature the carp.

What is a Silver Carp? Silver carp are a delicious, healthy, and inexpensive food choice that…

  • Has a mild, not fishy flavor – tastes better than catfish!
  • Minced product is 100% boneless
  • Safe for human consumption (silver carp are mid-stream, not bottom-feeders)
    • Low in chemical compounds and toxins – far less Mercury than found in tuna
  • Schafer Fisheries is a USDA / FDA approved supplier (HACCP #4034-092600-99323)
  • High in protein, low in fat and calories per serving
  • Cost much less than other sources of protein such as beef, pork, or chicken
  • Low carbon footprint
    • regionally-sourced food from Midwest rivers
