But a closer look at the four Asian carp species currently plaguing Americas waters points to one glaring fact: we clearly dont know much about these fish. Fortunately, researchers have finally started getting a handle on the animal best known for its ability to jump out of water when startled, says Duane Chapman, a biologist and leader of the Asian carp research team at the US Geological Survey (USGS).
