Asian Carp leap out of the water, slap kids in the face

So have you heard about Asian Carp? Probably not, thinking about it. Hmm. So just in case you haven’t been reading up on invasive oriental fish recently, it turns out they possess a pretty impressive ability – the ability to leap about, around, and over boats when they pass them… and it’s pretty damn weird.

It’s truly a jaw-dropping spectacle, and one that begs the question… why? Why on earth do they do this? It seems the reason why is simply because they’re scared of boats, and this is how they react.

As for why there are so many of the things in the water, it seems that that is down to the fact Asian Carp are an imported breed of fish – and one that breeds and breeds and breeds and, well, blows the other fish out of the water.
