Grass carp in rivers are the result of farm pond escapage, all right, but many were released into native waterways, beginning in 1963 at Stuttgart, Arkansas. There was subsequent rapid proliferation in native waters. The grass carp competes with native species for space and food and may even destroy habitat. Stocking is now only permitted with sterile grass carp.
