An Asian carp processing plant opened today in Wickliffe.
The Two Rivers Fishery plans to create 50 jobs, invest more than $2.5 million in the project and add to Kentucky exports.
The plant will blast-freeze processed fish for shipment to South East Asia. The by-products of the invasive fish can also be used in fertilizer. The plant plans to process and sell up to 10,000 pounds of Asian carp per day.
