The Multifaceted Carp Mankato's Moment on the Stage By Henry Quade
Mankato had a "moment on stage" as the result of local entrepreneur Armin Kleinschmidt's idea that canned carp could provide a delicious and valuable food source during WWII. Once a popular immigrant food source, today carp is considered by some a valuable recreational and food resource and by others a pest and a danger to the environment. Here the author gives us a historical perspective on carp and discusses the environmental impacts and entrepreneurial ventures regarding carp today.
