With a little marketing magic he will have a winner. Call it "Chilean Lake Sole" or "Lutefisk" and Americans won't get enough.

My uncle had a long, involved carp recipe that involved tacking it to a wooden plank then baking it. At the end you discard the carp and eat the plank.

Since only one person here lives near Madison, I eagerly await his review of this delicious fish.

My grandmother used carp in her gefilte fish. She also used pike -- the two of them mixed together. I would urge Wisconsin officials to avoid trying to rename carp as a means to get more folks to eat the things. Ohio once tried that with Lake Erie sheepshead. One brilliant Ohio Division of Wildlife official came up with the moniker Silver Bass. It went over like a, well, carp. Still some folks along the lake use sheepshead to make "Poor Man's Lobster." That was one of the uses the sheepshead enthusiasts in government championed.
 
I think I still have the recipe buried somewhere, if anyone is interested.

I've eaten Carp my entire life, in the form of Gefilte Fish.  Served with a dab of Horseradish, it makes a fine appetizer.  Of course, the Gefilte Fish itself is a tough sell for many.  Not a lot of love for what is basically a cold fish hamburger.  Trust me though, it's delicious.
 
Not as delicious as lutefisk of course, but...

What Michael said in his first sentence.

I love sweet gefilte fish with lots of horseradish. Fish pate!
