About the Film:

We’re proud to announce that CARPLAND was awarded Fly Fishing Movie of the Year and Best Story Awards at the 2015 Drake Magazine Video Awards, at the 15′ ICast Trade Show. The final film is now available on DVD and ready to ship! CARPLAND is a documentary-style carp video and adventure film about the history of carp in the United States. This non-native invasive species was introduced to U.S. waterways as a food source, and quickly spread to almost every state within a century. Prized around much of the world as a desirable menu item – and in some areas as a game fish – the name carp carries negative connotations in the U.S. pertaining to its value as table-fare and a sport fish. They pose a significant threat to numerous wild ecosystems and native flora and fauna. They’re also an adaptive species, thriving in waterways too damaged by pollution to support native species – providing angling opportunities for urban populations. Carp’s short history in North America spawns many questions about their role and future here. How did this desirable food fish fall from grace in households around the country? Why is one of the strongest and most desired international game fish overlooked by anglers in America? How do we protect wild areas and native species from being overrun with this invasive species? Should we support carp populations in areas where native species have vanished due to pollution? We’ll investigate these questions in this carp video, and more. Stay tuned.
