The SRNE first became interested in the possibility of eating invasive species
through our 2002 project I’ll Have a Starling. As part of the project, we created a book about harvesting, cooking and eating this invasive bird.

In 2010 we launched a project about invasive Asian carp in the Midwest, called On the Impact of Flying Carp. A major goal of our work was to promote eating this fish – a surprisingly tasty food – to combat its aggressive spread throughout the Mississippi, Missouri and Illinois River systems.
